Blitz! is our studio’s competition dance team! This team takes multiple classes and works hard to improve both in technique and performance.
Blitz’s first trip was in February, 2011. A small number of dancers traveled to Santa Clara and participated in a dance convention hosted by Hollywood Vibe. They took classes with top choreographers, and got to experience dance in a completely different way than is possible in a dance studio. It wasn’t all work though. Over the course of the weekend, they enjoyed a HUGE dinner at Buca di Beppo, a pool party, and an ice cream party in the hotel room!
In the 2011-2012 season, the team learned and recorded several dances. We sent the video audition to Disneyland, and the girls were given the opportunity to perform on Disneyland and California Adventures stages! The car rides were, well…amusing to say the least! The girls were lip syncing to songs, interpretive dancing…doing anything and everything to be entertained (and to entertain)!
In the 2012-2013 season, the team developed into two different levels. Blitz! Pro is for girls 13+, and Blitz! Co for girls 10-12. Together, they got to perform at Disneyland again, but this time they got to be in a Disneyland street parade!
In the 2013-2014 season, ANOTHER level of Blitz was added! Bitty Blitz is for dancers who are ages 7-9. The girls travel along with the “big girls” to learn what it means to be part of a team. All of Blitz attended their first convention/competition in February 2014, and they were amazing! Blitz Co and Pro competed; Both teams received Gold! Blitz Pro was awarded the special judge’s “Passionate” award, as well as placing 4th overall! I’m proud of each member for stepping outside of their comfort zone and being so successful.
This season (2014-2015) Blitz is fundraising to go to a convention and competition in NYC. They are working hard to raise the money and to become even better dancers so they’re ready for competition! We’ll enjoy all the best sights, eat at the best restaurants and shop at the best stores. Only the best for us!
