This past weekend, Provo High hosted the prestigious Ballroom DanceSport Festival. Once again, Provo’s Ballroom Dancers made their mark by bringing home a total of 13 trophies.
Provo High entered 3 categories for State Ballroom Showdance Championships. The Varsity Team won ALL three categories. The Ballroom style Showdance and the Latin Style Showdance won their divisions with ALL 1st place marks from all judges, and the Swing Showdance won by a 3 to 2 margin. The JV team also competed in 2 Showdance divisions and took 3rd in the Ballroom Style (beating out many other Varsity and JV teams).
In the Medley divisions, Varsity took 2nd in both Latin and Standard, losing to a private studio team from Idaho. During the team match event, PHS Varsity WON and JV took 4th. Again the JV team beat many varsity and JV teams from around the valley.
On Saturday, PHS had 5 of the 7 finalists in the Samba/Rumba dancers; 4 of the 6 Foxtrot/Cha cha dancers; and Austin Olivas and Erynn Williams took 3rd and Spencer Holman and McKenna Burningham took 5th in the Waltz/Quickstep.
Congratulations Ballroom, and thanks Angela Williams for your hours and hours of dedication to our great students!
