    Best. Feeling. Ever! 

    So proud of the Journey Line! They have worked so hard and the hard work paid off on Saturday at our first contest. It's more than the trophies, it's the smiles on the Sparkler's faces not only in this picture but every performance. 

     

    The Cooper Jr. High Sparklers competed at their first contest, Metroplex Dance Showcase hosted by ShowTime International at McKinney Boyd High School. Sparklers competed as a team, soloists, a trio, and a duet. Each time the Sparklers danced on the competition floor they sparkled and shined no matter their form of transportation. From dancing in the access road on Route 66 to in-flight entertainment on an airplane to conducting a train the Sparklers were committed to each performance and earned multiple top honors. One of the top honors was when the Sparklers danced as beach beauties for their Novelty and earned the Supreme Novelty Award for the entire contest.

    DALLAS GRAND FINALE RESULTS

    DoubleGrandChamps

    Double Grand Champions for our Contest Season! 

    The Sparklers Competition Team journey provided several scenic views at both contests! Our route to to contest was full of hard work and dedication from each Sparkler. The Journey Line had the challenge to take a trip as a family from in-flight entertainment to train conductors to drivingdown Route 66 to performing as beach beauties

    In between contests, Sparklers continued to work on the small details of each routine. There are several celebrations with the team routines. With Team Jazz, Sparklers provided in-flight entertainment for the judges dancing as flight attendants. On this routine alone the Sparklers earned three points higher from each judge from our first contest. With Team Military, Sparklers provided not only sharpness but also entertainment value in their facial expressions. Sparklers earned several compliments on the visuals of the routine. With Team Pom, all three judges recognized the difficulty of this routine with high marks on the score sheets. Judges complimented on how well the Sparklers were not only sharp with this performance, but also their energy level. For our Team Novelty, Sparklers performed as beach beauties. Sparklers cannot thank all of our supporters enough for helping us raise money for this routine to create props, benches, and a stage. The pure joy in their smiles and performance quality just sparkled as they performed this routine!

    Sparklers also competed as soloists, duet, and a trio. All Sparklers who participated in individual or small ensembles had the opportunity to perform on a stage. With this challenge, Sparklers worked hard determining new spacing. These performances were so fun to watch and celebrate all of their hard work!
