Leap National Dance Competition 2017

This weekend was our final competition of the season. What a great year of growth our dancers have had. We are so proud of the accomplishments on and off the stage.

This past weekend we attended Leap National Dance Competition in Minneapolis, MN; as well as a soloist compete at In10sity in Minneapolis. Leap had 19 studios attending and around 515 numbers competing.

Congratulations to all GSD dancers as well as those who also competed through the weekend. It is so great to watch each of the dances, see our dancers interact with others and how they support each other.
