PDP capped off our successful season with two National Championships at the USA Dance Nationals in Anaheim. Senior Amber Hoffman was named the Grand Champion soloist, beating out soloists from across the US. We are so proud of our team! We've loved performing "Vienna," our large dance number and "Closure," our small dance number all year and are so thankful to our coaches and choreographers for your dedication to our team! Vienna also had the highest choreography score of the weekend and congratulations to our choreographer, Courtney Barclay, for her beautiful choreography in both "Vienna" and "Closure."
PDP's dance, "Vienna," took first place at the West Coast Elite, Inc. Nationals in Long Beach on March 24th! Great job, ladies!
