Over the weekend four local dance teams competed at the Showcase America Unlimited nationals in Kentucky, where nearly 2,500 dancers performed over 200 shows. And once again, it was the squads from Mansfield, OH that stole the show.

Sophistication Dance Company racked up the hardware yet again at national competition inside the Bank of Kentucky Center, with all four teams earning multiple awards.

The "Little Attitude Mini's" took first place in both jazz and pom in route to capturing the squad's third consecutive grand championship.

The "Little Attitudes Elementary" won their first ever grand championship as well, taking the top spot in both hip-hop and jazz, while finishing in 2nd place in pom

The "New Attitude Juniors" swept 1st place in jazz, pom and lyrical, and finished in 3rd place in the "Best of the Best" competition, the teams highest finish ever.

Finally, the "New Attitude Seniors" took 1st place in hip-hop, 2nd place in both jazz and lyrical and 3rd place in pom.

SDC head coach Krystle Branham believes the girls did better than they had expected, saying "I knew we were going down there with high hopes and we came back with more than what we expected."

The company will now wrap-up their season with one final performance at Lucas Middle School on Sunday, April 27 at 2 p.m.
