 JDC Competes in Triumph Regional Competition in July2020

During this time of Covid, dance competitions had come to a halt.  Besides all the state-wide illnesses, etc.(luckily none at the gym) classes had been cancelled.   In addition to all the other sadnesses, our dancers and gymnasts had their hopes for the 2020 season dashed.  After the Governor gave the word, our classes resumed.  To those of us who follow our Jacksonville Dance Company, we knew that this was our very best season ever, so we were especially disappointed.  However, under very different circumstances, the Triumph Regional Competition was held in Branson, Missouri.  The competition was arranged so that only one dance studio competed during a set time, so our performances were arranged so that the dancers had time to change costumes between numbers.  The performances were performed live but also to video so that the judges could rank the performances for the entire competition.  JDC dancers performed very well, especially after months of no classes.  Triumph had planned to hold their national competition but at the last minute, it had to be cancelled.  BUT, at least our dancers had the opportunity to perform this last time of the 2020 competition season.  

The following is reported as the dancers performed - the results and JDC professional pictures (taken at times of recreational and tap performances at the Huff 'n Puff Studio) are the photos used to show who the dancers were.  Some of the performances had decided to not compete so they are not shown here.  They are shown in the recital pictures, however.
