Dance X-pressions wins big at Top

DXP Competition Team attended Talent On Parade dance competition in Des Moines March 26-30. This is the largest regional competition of the season, comparing to most national competitions, spanning across five days, two stages and more than 1,050 routines. DXP’s team of 22 dancers entered 27 routines, receiving nine Double Diamonds, 14 Diamond Elites, two Elites, and two TOP trophies for their adjudicated awards.

DXP had 15 routines in the TOP Ten Overall Lineups, with 10 of these placing in the TOP Five. Two routines were First Overall Champions –”Set It On Fire” jazz routine (Megan Aulwes, Dylan Johnson, Ashtyn Ellison, Abigail White, Elizabeth Shepherd, Kiera Klum and Jocelyn Maw); and “Zero To Hero” musical theater routine (Dylan Johnson, Ashtyn Ellison, Abigail White, Elizabeth Shepherd, Kiera Klum, Jocelyn Maw, Chloe Zintz, Shaylin Brown and Masey Brown). Other routines in the Overalls include – Peytin Ellison solo, Kaitlyn Lancaster solo, Kiera Klum solo, Jocelyn Maw solo, Maddie Kirkland solo, Elizabeth Shepherd solo, Jocelyn Maw and Kiera Klum duet, Maddie Kirkland and Abby Sells duet, “I Won’t Give Up” lyrical group, Bom Bom Bom tap group, “Playerz” hip hop group, “Americano” jazz group and “Fools” lyrical group.

Four routines were awarded Category Cups for being the highest scoring routine in their style of dance – Alexis Johnson and Elizabeth sells duet, “Set It On Fire” jazz group, “Zero To Hero” musical theater group, and “Playerz” hip hop group. “Wild, Wild Party” musical theater group was given a Judge’s Choice Award.

Two soloists made the High Point Overall lineup, which is calculated by averaging each of their two solos together – Peytin Ellison eighth Overall and Maddie Kirkland third Overall. Three soloists placed in the TOP Entertainer TOP 10 lineup for their entertainment value – Kiera Klum fourth Overall, Maddie Kirkland second Overall and Elizabeth Sells ninth Overall. Kiera Klum received a Dance Directive Scholarship for master classes this fall. Maddie Kirkland was awarded a scholarship for TOP’s Pre Pro program, which prepares dancers for a professional dance career. She was also given the opportunity to compete in the Solo Dance Challenge this summer.
