Five members of the Kodiak High School dance team spent an eventful two weeks in Washington state attending summer camp.
And they returned to the island with a ticket to Nationals in February in Orlando, Florida.
The group qualified for the big dance by earning a first-place finish for their home routine performed at the Universal Dance Association Dance Camp in Centralia, Washington.
Sarah Quiliza, Troy Valdez and Kim Recustodio were selected to the All-Star team, which was voted on by instructors.
“Those who show exceptional talent, sportsmanship and dedication are selected to be a part of the All-Star team,” coach Amy Belisle wrote in an email.
The team, also comprised of Marcus Vizocho and Ariel Magnuson, earned the Leadership Award, a full-out ribbon for working hard each day and a superior first-place trophy for their final evaluations.
All five picked up first-place blue ribbons.
