The Ignite Dance advanced team captured two first place awards at the recent USA Regional dance competition. This was Ignite’s first ever competition. The team now moves up to the USA All Star Championships in Anaheim in March. Ignite’s advanced team includes nine students from Rose Elementary and Mission Middle. These driven dancers credit their achievements to their extraordinary dance leaders, Rose Elementary Family Liaison Veronica Casanova and Rose teacher Jennifer Robbins, who say it wouldn’t be possible without Principal Lisa Pitard’s endless support.
