I loved how they set up a noncompetitive atmosphere so the dancers and coaches all felt comfortable helping and sharing across teams.'" Coach MelindaLonoke High School
"'The staff was great for our team, so thorough when teaching.'" Coach CathyDyersburg High School
"'I love how much information our dancers received. Dances, team bonding, etc. Also, Janna Teeter was the best camp director I have ever had.'" Coach CarmenLakeside High School
