PACT Charter School can add state tournament entrant to its list of accomplishments after the Ramsey charter school’s dance team qualified for the Class A state dance tournament. The Pantherettes are one of five Class A programs to make it to state in both jazz and kick.
Several events are on the calendar as we head into the first week of October. Here are a few items to take note of.
The Bengalettes from Blaine High School attended Just For Kix Dance Camp in Brainerd earlier this month. Each dancer learned three routines at the four-day camp and danced approximately five to seven hours a day. The camp offers instruction for every level, ranging from beginner to elite, and various dance styles, including jazz, kick, pom, novelty, hip-hop, contemporary, and lyrical. On the final day of camp, the dancers performed the routines they learned for parents, coaches, and friends.
The season-opening Northwest Suburban Conference Danceteam meet included 10 teams performing Jazz/Funk routines in two groups at Coon Rapids High School Nov. 16.
