It was a day of dance featuring 120 dances and a packed house at Eastview High School as the Eastview Lightning Dance Team hosted teams from around the state at their annual invitational tournament.

Register for the December Giveaway

Most notably in the final tallies was the AA Varsity Jazz competition which saw, after three tie breakers, a first place tie between Benilde-St. Margaret’s and Totino-Grace.  Scroll to the bottom for a gallery of photos – we are getting through them and please check back often to see new photos.

    • Please see the slideshow at the bottom of the post for the ones that are ready. I do not have all the dances done yet. Go to http://www.mndancenews.com/join to get notices when events with sponsored galleries (the ones you can download) are ready. I did not have a sponsor for the Eastview gallery so I will put up a few more photos but we are not doing a comprehensive gallery.


  1. Our Granddaughter danced at Eastview recently for the Holy Angels dance team. Her name is Morgan Zangs. Someone sent me a photo from Minnesota Dance News…I hope I am able to get a print from you (I understand the photo may be copyrighted and I respect that). My hope is to get permission or a copy for Christmas. Is that possible? What would the cost be? I would like a 5×7 if possible.

    Thank you. You can reach me at the e mail or 612-483-5067. It is an outstanding photo !
