The Akron-Westfield Danz Squad began their new season with attending camp at Lake Okoboji. The students took classes and danced for over 9 hours each day learning new routines for the coming year. Dancers were awarded ribbons for technique, spirit, showmanship and all-around dance ability.
Top Gun medals were given to Makayla Swancutt, kick; Kali Kriener, pom; and Bethany Eastman, hip hop.
At the end of camp, the following students were chosen to try out for the All-Iowa state honor dance team: Bethany Eastman, Eliza Kjar, Sarah Schroeder, Lexi Hageman, Kali Kriener, and Makayla Swancutt.
Instructors at the camp were Natasia Eastman and Kayla Cain. Co-directors Natasia Eastman and Val Philips attended as camp directors. Special thanks to parents, Annette Bosse and Chris Harvey, who served as chaperones.
