EAU CLAIRE — The Colfax Dance Team competed Saturday, January 11 in the Western Wisconsin Conference Competition at Eau Claire North High School.
The team’s pom routine to a “Crazy Frog” mix, which was led in choreography by captains Kayla Scholfield and Haley Seston, took first place in the Dunn-St.Croix Conference. Their jazz routine performed to the song, “In The End”, and led in choreography by captain Haley Seston and Katie Riley, placed second.
Teams that perform two routines were eligible to earn conference championships. This year Colfax came up just short to Spring Valley’s dance team. Colfax earned second place overall in the Dunn St.Croix Conference.
One dancer, Haley Seston, choreographed and performed her solo to, “Under Your Scars”, and earned second place at this competition. Soloists can also be chosen by all the coaches in the Dunn-St.Croix conference to be first team all-conference. This award goes to the highest scoring soloists each year. Haley has performed a solo in each of her four years in high school and has earned this honor every year, including this one.
Three dancers this year, Kayla Scholfield, Hunter Larson, and Katie Riley, choreographed and performed a trio to a mix, “Pump Up The Jam”. They earned first place with their routine. Ensembles (performances with 2 to 4 dancers) can be chosen by the coaches for second team all-conference awards. This routine earned that honor. Plus, this is Kayla Scholfield’s second year performing in the ensemble category and she has earned this award both years.
The team is now focused on the WACPC Regional Dance competition that will be held at Hudson High School on January 25.
The dancers will be working to improve their routines using the comments given by judges at this conference competition. The trio has gone as far as it can go.
The regional competition will decide if the teams’ Jazz routine, the teams’ Pom routine, and/or Haley’s solo move on to WACPC State Dance competition.
