Photo submitted Encore Dance Company will groove their way to Las Vegas in July for competition.

Encore competed at the regional level in Detroit May 4-6, earning five Top First Place and two First Place awards.

Special judges’ awards were given to tap routines “Supersonic,” choreographed by Amy Rose for Rockin’ Rhythm, and “Say Hey,” choreographed by Sarah (Smallbone) Northrup for Fancy Footwork.

“Good Feeling,” a hip hop routine choreographed by Eileen Springsteen, received Second Overall High Score in their division.

Encore Extreme Pom Team, directed by Kimberly Martz, also competed at regionals, receiving a Top First Place award qualifying them for nationals.

Attending competition is a healthy way for the dancers to measure their own hard work. The dancers are exposed to a variety of dance companies from all over the state.

Encore Dance Company’s mission is to develop inner-discipline and integrity in youth through the performing arts.

Encore Dance Company’s next appearance will be at Encore School of the Art’s recital at Dowagiac Middle School on May 20.
