Thank you to Ormstown 4-H for hosting and planning, to all who came down to support the event, and to the families who support the teams by driving them to their practices and cheering them on at competitions. Thank you also to the leaders of each team who coached and motivated the young dancers to showcase their talents, the band for their live music, and the judges who had to make the tough decisions.

Congratulations to all teams who dedicated time to practice, drive down and participate this year – we hope to see you again next year!
