The Star Systems National Talent Competition is a dance competition, that we have competed in for years. The regional competition we participated in happened from February 28 to March 3 and we had amazing results! Our Seniors won Elite High Gold and High Gold honors, and our Teens and Juniors both won High Gold and Gold honors.
That being said, congratulations to our honored dancers: Makena Cavarozzi, Taylor Magon, Mia Mormino, Erin Lamothe, Amanda Cohen, Hannah Caplan, Kortney Jennings, Ava Izadi, Amanda Evans, Mia Brookenthal, Keira Kleinfinger, Asia Umali, Camryn Chambers and Rachel Luner.
From the very first moment sisters Quincy and Gracie Latkovski were wheeled onto stage, we could tell it was going to be an emotional performance. Gracie, who uses a wheelchair due to effects of Cystic Fibrosis and Cerebral Palsy has been dancing since she was 3 years-old. This past weekend, the now 9-year-old took on the Jamfest Dance Super Nationals in Kentucky with her sister Quincy.
The duet began with both girls in wheelchairs, but Quincy soon stood up and twirled around her sister in their choreographed dance to “Reflections.” The audience was in awe of the Latkovski sisters and we can saw we were also inspired and moved by their performance. Quincy and Gracie took the national championship in the special needs category. (FOX 19)
