Jazz Company Competes at LA Dance Magic

The UCDC Jazz Company attended the LA Dance Magic dance convention and competition on January 19-20 2013, at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville, SC. The teams took classes all weekend and competed on Saturday evening. The company auditioned for scholarships bright and early on Sunday morning and thirteen dancers advanced on to another set of auditions during the lunch break. Numerous hours were devoted to rehearsals, prop building, prop painting, costume making & rhinestoning. Our goal could not have been accomplished without everyone’s unselfish devotion to our dancers. Congratulations to the entire Jazz team on a fabulous start to our competition season.
