A Charleston dance group will be representing the U.S. in the World Show Dance Championships.
Seven girls from the Goose Creek-based Movin’ On Dance Company have been competing together since February to qualify for the international competition, which will be held November 25-30 in Germany. Selected by the dance company’s staff, the girls competed in a regional qualifier in May and the national competition in New York City for eligibility.
“The girls are so dedicated and practice every day. This is an amazing opportunity for them,” says artistic director Darlene Schrader. “They are beside themselves.” The girls are all between the ages of 12 and 15. They've been holding fundraisers since July to help support their travels, but they are still in need of major sponsors for uniforms and flags.
