It has been some time since I (Matt) have been able to cover live competition. Minnesota Dance News has covered the MSHSL seasons for two years now but have not had much of a chance to cover the other side of many Minnesota high school dancers dance life, studio competition.
It was a snowy April 14 – 17 inches snowy in fact. After a 2.5 hour drive from Chanhassen to Minneapolis saw the charity event I was going to cover get cancelled due to to “in-climate weather” – actually it was a blizzard.
The upside? I was stuck downtown with the DX Majestic studio competition just a short trip down the skyway.
It was a very different experience from the MSHSL dance style with many different dance styles of dance represented.
Enjoy a few photos and let us know what studio events you are dancing at this Summer, maybe we will be able to come out and cover some of our awesome high school dancers on the stage at a studio event this summer.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Dance Event Calendar Notice.
