In December, the Lancer Dancers participated in two competitions, placing high in all categories. On December 9th they did their lyrical piece, choreographing to the song 5am at Althoff Catholic High School. They were awarded first place in both IDTA as well as IHSA and qualified for the state competition, which will be held in Springfield on February 10th.

The following Saturday, Belleville East hosted the competition. This time the girls competed both their lyrical and their jazz dances. In IDTA, both dances received first place and in IHSA their lyrical dance received 2nd place. Along with both of these awards, sophomore Hannah Goodson was awarded a Rising Star award, which is a high honor for both the individual and the team. This award is given only to people who stand out to the floor judge.

After asking Hannah what it felt like to receive this award and she responded, “I didn’t really expect to win anything considering. I just started dancing this year, so I was shocked when my name was called.” We are all very proud of Hannah and Lancer Dancers. Keep up the good work!

*Side note: IHSA and IDTA are different judging systems. IHSA has no restrictions on school size or specified dance categories, whereas IDTA has different classes for the sizes of schools and has different categories. Both have separate state competitions.
