“Thank you Edina for recognizing Dance Team in the D1 sigining today. Can’t wait to watch my fellow classmates continuing their sports next year as well.” Nola Winje

You have seen both dancers through Minnesota Dance News coverage over the last couple years. Edina Dance Team head coach, Kristin Biwan, led the Edina Dance Team to a second place finish at the 2019 Jazz state tournament this year.
