Spirit Week 2016-HUGE SUCCESS!

Spirit Week 2016 was so FABULOUS!  We were so impressed with the amount of time and effort that went into it by all dancers!   All the turquoise/black/glitter/fun make-up that we saw in so many recreational classes!  Company shirts worn by so many companies!  Mini Company's fantastic kisses left for everyone and adorable signs and outfits! Junior Company's wonderful face paint, wings, signs, and capes! Senior Company with ALL the studio decorations, signs, and thoughtful competition survival kits for other dancers!   We loved the both the picture boards by Teen and Senior Company.   We were especially impressed with the board with the pictures that were from THE DAY BEFORE AT DRESS REHEARSAL!  Thank you Janis Hebaus!  We know that so many dancers and their families took so much time and gave so much effort.  We are so grateful to have such excellent people involved at WBDC!   Making the judging decision was almost IMPOSSIBLE this season.  After much consideration we have decided that this season's TRIPLE TITANIUM winner is a tie between Teen and Petite Company!  The studio signs, picture board, custom tutus, custom t-shirts, custom socks, custom headbands, hand made cards for so many other dancers, and written, recorded, and performed original song from Teen Company, as well as, Petite Company's Custom WBDC Diva shirts, boas, bows, sunglasses, crowns, bracelets, sashes for teachers, signs, posters, hand made cards wrapped and delivered to companies, sucker and cupcakes for the entire studio and the larger than life presence of awesome studio spirit makes these two companies the winners this season!   Spirit Week and ALL WBDC dancers exceeded expectations this season!  THANK YOU!
