The studio boasts nearly 250 dancers, including roughly 100 dancers from the Canadian side. Dancers from the studio recently competed at the Celebration Talent Regionals in Duluth, Mn., where they took home a number of high ranking awards. Callahan Armstrong was named “Dancer of the Year” at the competition, and also earned a platinum award, the highest offered. She will go on to compete at the national level this summer in Wisconsin Dells, Wisc.
