Studio Dance Arts Named Top Studio

0

Studio Dance Arts, recently competed at the View Dance Challenge competition in North Bay, Ontario. The team of 110 competitive dancers from both its Sault Ste. Marie and Elliot Lake locations competed against 15 other dance studios at the event. A panel of three professional adjudicators judged 750 routines throughout the weekend, and finally gave the nod to Studio Dance Arts as The Top Dance Studio.
The top prize is a result of taking the ten highest scores from each studio. The studio with the highest point value wins the final award – a 7 night all expense paid trip to the Caribbean for the studio owner and guest.
