Competition Dance Team Earns Honors

The Bearcat Dance Team recently attended a weekend-long convention in Santa Clara where they competed and took classes from the top dancers/choreographers in the business.  For a few of them, this was their first competition and convention.  
 
The team took top honors as their two dances placed 1st and 3rd in their category and one of the dances received one of 3 Best of NUVO out of 100 dances.  They were asked to dance in the final showcase (which is a big honor) and Oscar Gutierrez received a full scholarship as a Breakout Artist (only 10 of hundreds of kids earned), and Devin Hartley and Brooke Corrales were runner up!  Also receiving partial scholarships were Reese Hartley, Griffin Benado and Daniel Puga.  Choreography was done by Dana Budd and the team is coached by Dana Budd and Jennifer Bedrosian.
