The Dance Guard participated in their first competition of the season, the Sharp International Championships, which took place at Santiago High School in Garden Grove. The Dance Guard received first place in all four divisions in which they were entered: JV Pom, Varsity Pom, Lyrical, and Jazz. They had been preparing their routines since January. A student-led group composed of Malia Mason, Katey Knall, and Alisa Majarova (and choreographed by alumni Makayla Mason) also placed first in the trio category as well. They were very excited to place with a routine that was entirely their own, and also are thankful to their coaches who encouraged them to put this together.
Because of their high scores in multiple categories, the dance guard team received the title of Overall Grand Champions, the highest award at the competition. This is an amazing feat in itself, but made even more impressive because of the fact that there are currently no seniors on the team. Go RUHS Dance Guard!”
