State Dance Competition
It’s been a month and a half since a dance team’s state title was protested by their competitors. Last month, the Faribault dance team won the State 3-A high kick competition.
The five teams they were competing against refused to take their places during the ceremony.
The Faribault Emerald dance team took home the first place trophy in the Class AAA State High-Kick Dance Championship, but not without controversy. Many of their competitors claim they copied a dance and didn’t deserve the win.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s already winter state tournament season in Minnesota high school sports. Just last week, state champions were crowned at the State Dance Competition at Target Center as well as the State Alpine and Nordic Ski Championships at Giant’s Ridge in Biwabik, Minn.
It’s stressful enough for coaches and athletes competing at a state tournament, but how about trying to save someone’s life just before you are supposed to compete?
