The Julestarz Academy Company Dance Team recently achieved 3rd Place at the Star Dance Alliance World Championships in The Meadowlands, in New Jersey in August.
Their production of “Aladdin” was one of only seven numbers selected among
1,040 competing numbers to attend the World Championship!
The number featured an amazing set including pillars to look like the Taj Mahal, a 6 foot elephant that Aladdin sits on and a 5 foot Genie lamp the Genie pops out of. The number is truly magical!
26 of the Julestarz dancers travelled to New Jersey to compete. They performed the routine and made it to the semi-finals, enabling them to perform the number a 2nd time. At the 2nd awards ceremony they received the third place trophy for their entire performance division.
Julie Kenny, owner of Julestarz Academy, pointed out the significance of this honor: “These are the world championships!” she said excitedly. “To place 3rd in the entire world is a great achievement. I am so proud of my team and how hard they worked to get here! I cannot wait to start working on our piece for this coming year.”
Julestarz is located in FishHawk Ranch and in Riverview. For more information on how you could become a part of this award winning team call 813-661-9037 or visit www.julestarzacademy.com
