This year’s Candance National Competition was hosted at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida from June 30th to July 6th, 2018.
Looking back, it was a truly amazing and inspiring week. We witnessed some incredible performances. We faced things that scared us, and we learned to have courage. We experienced a few hitches along the way, but our dancers came through with fabulous showmanship on stage and great sportsmanship off the stage!
A remarkable amount of time, sweat and tears went into preparing for this competition – and we had some impressive results. Here are the competition highlights from Candance Nationals:
