WF dance teams shine at state
West Fargo dance teams had a huge weekend.
The Packatahnas grabbed three first-place varsity trophies and three first-place junior varsity trophies during the North Dakota Association of Dance and Drill state competition Jan. 29-30, at Minot State University.
The varsity team took first in high kick, jazz and hip hop, while JV took first in high kick, jazz and pom.
This is the first year back at the state tournament for the Packatahnas since skipping the competition last year in lieu of nationals.
Approximately 620 dancers from around the state performed at the tournament.
The West Fargo Cheney Middle School Mystikix also did well at the tournament and placed second in the junior high category. They also earned the academic achievement award and the sportsmanship award.
Mystikix coach Kristi Brager was named coach of the year.
