Nationals 2012

Our competition team was amazing at Kids Artistic Revue’s Nationals this year!
It seems almost impossible for a studio with about 45 entries to stand out at a competition of about 1200 entries,
but HDA did it!
With confidence, talent, and desire, HDA managed to push its way to the top in the Secondary, Intermediate, and Elite levels.
They earned high enough scores to re-compete in the “Star Showcase” at the end of the competition!

Although they were not named “Grand Champions” at the Star Showcase, their dances will be remembered for years to come.
It’s not the performances that scored the highest that are remembered, it’s the performances that moved people.
Congrats HDA!
