Dance X-pressions dominates at Midwest Starz

The Dance X-pressions competition team came home with great honors from the Midwest Starz dance competition, which they attended on March 9-10. This was a two-day competition with more than 500 entries competing.

DXP’s team of 20 dancers entered 24 routines bringing home eight Platinums, 15 High Golds and one Gold. Platinum is the highest awarded trophy, followed by High Gold, Gold and Silver.

Fourteen of DXP’s routines placed in the Top 5 High Point lineups, with two routines being named First Overall High Point Champions in the competitive level division. Special awards received include: Hip Hop routine “Haterz” awarded Best Choreography of the Day; Maddie Kirkland and Addie Zaputil named Standout Dancers; and five routines received Judge’s Choice Awards.

“[We are] so grateful for all of the positive feedback we received from the judges,” said DXP owner Brittany Cosgrove. “DXP students, teachers and parents invest so much in the art of dance and it is very rewarding to see the dedication pay off by coming home with many top awards and great enthusiasm from the judges towards our studio.”
