RDT defends their National Title for the second consecutive year

RDT poses in front of their National Champion trophy while wearing their jackets.

This past weekend in Orlando, Florida the Raven Dance team competed in the NDA competition. They competed Nationwide from schools all around the country and even some schools internationally. The girls entered the competition with a lot of pressure on their backs knowing that it was very important to defend their National Title that they earned last year. With the loss of a handful of senior leaders the girls knew they had a lot to live up to. But no surprise, the girls danced like they never have before and won the National title in team performance for the second consecutive year. The girls also competed in the jazz category and placed third Nationally. Sunday night they competed against international schools such as a school from Japan and are currently ranked fifth place Internationally. Without all of the morning practices, after school practices, and the coaching and choreogrpahy of head coach, Shannon Judge the girls wouldn’t be able to call themselves National Champions.”It was a sigh of relief and accomplishment because we worked so hard and were rewarded with another national champion title,” sophomore member Adrianna Morse says.The girls brought back a a life size trophy, a National Champion banner to display next to the one they won last year, and they all received National Champion jackets to wear. As RDT returns back to school, make sure if you see any of the team members you congratulate them on their National Title.
