Dance studio takes home all platinum awards
All seven Desiree Dance Studio (DDS) competition lines and solos did great at the recent Midwest Starz Dance Competition in Monticello, Minn. They started off the competition season with all platinums, the highest earned award. It was the first time ever in DDS history to go all platinum.
Every routine that competes can earn a silver, gold, high gold or platinum award. This was a wonderful accomplishment for DDS dancers and staff.
Also congratulations to Sara Sunde, Rhiannon Lasch, Taylor Kosman, Abbey Callahan, Mercedey Harper and Khyah Harper for receiving “Oustanding Dancer Awards” from three professional judges and are invited to perform at Nationals with other Outstanding Dancers from across the nation.
