Thank you everyone for all the fabulous support and feedback and positive thoughts!! UKDT has officially made it through to both Pom and Hip Hop finals!! We are so pumped and so excited to dance even harder tomorrow!
With the excitement of making it into Pom finals and determination to make it through to Hip Hop finals, we were ready to impress everyone with our great Hip Hop routine. We performed 26th out of 26 teams and decided to use that to our advantage–saving the best for last! As we were backstage getting ready to take the floor, we could hear the cheerleaders cheering GO BIG BLUE!! That pumped us up even more! We took the floor with confidence and danced with all our hearts. We hit a hard, clean, crazy routine, leaving everything on the floor!! We were proud of how we danced and so were Dawn and Andrea, our amazing coaches. Our choreographer Julie was there to watch and was extremely proud of us as well!
A little while later UDA announced the list of teams who made it into finals. There were 13 teams called in no particular order. Our name was the last one called! We were so nervous but once we heard University of Kentucky we erupted in cheers!
After prelims we were able to relax a little and take a trip to the Magic Kingdom. We rode the merry-go-round to past time before dinner (space mountain’s line was too long) and ate at Liberty Hall. UKDT had so much fun, telling jokes and making each other laugh. We get along so well and always have fun every where we go!! My team is awesome.
Tomorrow we perform Hip Hop around 12pm and Pom around 4pm in the HP Field House at the Wide World of Sports. We can’t wait to run out of the castle and dance even better than we did today!
The Kentucky cheerleaders will advance into finals tomorrow!! They performed tonight as well and delivered a phenomenal performance!! UKDT would like to give a HUGE thank you to the cheerleaders for coming to support us and cheer us on today!! It truly helped us perform even better. We can’t wait to cheer them on and support them at finals tomorrow!
Thank you for keeping up with the Kentucky Dance Team! I can’t wait to update BBN tomorrow with our final results!!
