Starlites dance team wins national title


The Starlites are back on the move.

The competitive dance team recently traveled to St. Louis, Missouri, for the Jamfest Dance Super Nationals.

The Starlites junior team placed first overall in the Lyrical Division to qualify for the Dance Summit National championships at Walt Disney World in May.

Team members included Nalani Broderick, Chasity Jacob, Nyah Reynolds, Abby Slossar, Allison Slossar, Brianna Slossar, Jayde Ullenbruch and Reese VonHiltmayer.

“We worked very hard and we pushed outside of our comfort zone to get the best out of ourselves,” Brianna Slossar said. “Because of that, we won the National Champion title in Lyrical. The best feeling was getting chosen to represent varsity at the Dance Summit National Dance Championships at Walt Disney World in May”.

The team also placed second in the Pom and Jazz divisions. The Starlites senior team was third in Lyrical and fourth in Pom, Jazz and Hip Hop. The team was awarded an at-large bid in the Pom and Jazz divisions to Dance Worlds.

Senior dance members include Jamie Rich, Alivia Dunn, Andrea Dunn, Averie Dunn, Maddy Hemby, Emma Huston, Kyra Larsen, Brynn McGregor, Mallory Nowiski, Adrienne Slossar and Morgan Smith.

“I love this competition because we have a lot of amazing teams from across the country that we are against,” Rich said. “We have been working so hard to get where we are now and I can’t wait to see what this competition has in store for us.”

The Starlites will return later this month for the Team Champion Dance Nationals in Chicago, before traveling to Florida in May.

“Having our teams being able to compete head-to-head against these amazing teams from across the country is a tribute to their consistent hard work and determination,” Starlites coach Laurie Charron said.

“The greatest reward is being chosen by these prestigious national dance organizations to represent them at both Dance Worlds for our senior team and Dance Summit for our junior team. These invitations are, above all else, priceless and humbling.”
