Dance Team of the Year: Eastern High
For the second year in a row, Eastern showcased an amazing season to be selected our WISH Dance Team of the Year.
Out of all Louisville-area schools, Eastern was the only one to receive a highest honor at the prestigious Universal Dance Association (UDA) National Championships. They placed 1st in the small jazz division in Orlando, Florida earlier this year. This was Eastern’s first UDA championship with choreographer and dance coaches Lee Eaves and Tiffany Beaumont.
Among rival teams and talented coaches in the area, Eastern has a reputation for its strong technique, consistency, and showmanship.
Join us as we celebrate Eastern dance and a host of other team and individual winners at WISH on Sept. 20! For ticket information, click here.
