On Saturday March 12, 2016 the Minnesota Association of Dance Teams (MADT) hosted the All-State Dance Team at Shakopee High School. This event is not a competition but instead a show that highlights all the wonderful dance talent that the state of Minnesota has to offer. There were 221 dancers in attendance with a total of 80 Minnesota high schools being represented.
Parents, fans, siblings, teammates, and coaches filled the gym at 6:30pm ready to watch the show which was made up of an opening number, three high kick routines (one from class A, AA, and AAA), three jazz routines (also made up from each class) and a finale where all 221 dancers came together to preform.
The dancers who were nominated and then selected to be a part of the All-State Team had just a couple weeks to learn their routines online at home and then come ready the day of the show to learn their formations.
Congratulations to all the dancers who were selected to be an All-State Dance Team member!
