Daytona Beach - The Sacred Heart Dance team has been one the most consistent and highest ranking teams in Club Sports history. This year is no different. Coming off a strong 2017 performance, the team looked to duplicate their success in the 2018 campaign. After months of practice and sacrifice, the team took to the stage with the one goal of reaching the bandshell for the finals in both Team Performance and Hip Hop.
Team performance was the first event when the team arrived. The team has been finishing in the top 10 consistenly in recent memory, and hoped to continue that trend. After the first dance, the team was placed in the Challenge Cup and would have to place first to advance. The same thing happened in 2017, and the Pioneers prevailed. Hoping for the same success, the team repeated as Challenge Cup Champs and advanced to the Bandshell Finals the next day!
The team finished in 7th place in Team Performance! The Hip Hop performance's would start the following day, with the top teams advancing once again to the Bandshell for the finals. Once again looking to continue off their 2017 success, the team performed extraordinarly well once again finishing 4th in the preflims and advancing to the finals! The dance can once again be seen below.
After the bandshell dance, the team finished 4th in the finals making it back to back years with Top 5 finishes in the Hip Hop category. Thank you to this years senior class for once again leading the team to a successful Fall and Winter season's on the field's and gym while also leading them to high National Rankings! For those interested in trying out for the 2018-19 Dance Team, auditions are on Saturday April 28th at 10:30am in the William H. Pitt Center's Dance studio.
