Ovation Dance Challenge 2017

This past weekend our competition teams attended Ovation Dance Challenge in Fargo, ND. The Ovation staff was great and it was so fun to see what other studios are doing. Congratulations to all on a great weekend.

Congratulations to GSD dancers as well. We are always proud of what you bring to the stage. Remember it's the journey. It's not about this competition or the last, it's about your growth as a dancer and your journey as a dancer and person. We are proud of everything you did this weekend and your continued hard work.
