We had so much fun as a team at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, OH! We are so proud of all our Talent Factory Company Dancers! They put in so much hard work this season and it showed! Our team may be small but we are mighty! We would like to congratulate every dancer and studio who took the stage at Nationals! We witnessed so many amazing, creative, breathtaking and magical pieces from studios across the country! Such an inspiring and memorable week with our dance family! Now we are onto our 2023-2024 Season!

We are so proud of everyone who auditioned! Unfortunately, not everyone could make the team. We encourage all of our students to work hard in their classes this year to grow technically, and to re-audition next year. It takes patience and lots of extra work outside the classroom. Don’t give up!

We welcome those who didn’t make the Talent Factory Company to participate in all studio public performances throughout the upcoming season. This will help prepare you for next year’s auditions. Watch your email for those dates!
