The Silver Stars competed in their last competition of the season the Lee’s Summit North Invitational on Friday Jan. 23 and Saturday Jan. 24.

This marks the team’s first year in the invitational. The team had many practices and hired a choreographer to clean their dance.

“We were very well prepared and everyone was excited to compete,” senior Macie Rouse said. “I was also nervous because it was a brand new competition for our team.”

After the solos, duets, and trios on Friday night, team performances took place on Saturday. Sophomore Julia Kemp was anxious for the results of the dances.

“[This] was going to be our toughest competition of the season,” Kemp said. “Dance is based off the judges’ opinions. It is hard to take [criticism] as a dancer; you have to take it as constructive criticism.”

The team preformed their hip-hop, jazz and pom routine. The hip-hop and jazz routines placed fourth, while the pom placed first.

“I believe it was the team’s best performance of the season,” Rouse said.

Even though the team did not win, they were happy with their results.

“As a team, I don’t think there’s much we could have done better,” Rouse said. “We put a lot of time and effort into this season and I think it paid off. This was one of the teams’ best seasons.”
