DC2 Dance Company Makes The Cut

The Dance Company of Dance Connection 2 was showcased on the Showstopper National Dance Competition’s Magazine spread!  Dance Connection 2 recently competed at this event and did very well with their solos, duo/tiros, groups, and lines!  This Chandler, Arizona based dance studio is home to many dancers and teachers that have been on So You Think you Can Dance, National Sports Dance Teams, Disney, National TV Shows, and even movies like Burlesque & Bring It On.

The dance routine “Why” that was performed  by Mikella Markovic and Brooke Flores was phenomenal!  This outstanding choreography was created from the wonderful Kira DiMartino!  She is an industry leading choreographer as you can tell – it being a huge reason why we were awarded this great cover photo, but also such a humble individual that really gave our dancers an awesome opportunity.  Of course our very own Tally Nikolaus and Chelsea Foster helped mold these two into an award winning duo!

We at Dance Connection 2 want to send a huge thanks to the photographer, graphic designers, owners, and workers of the Showstopper Dance Competition for making these dancers look their best at just the right moment.  This awesome competition will recognize this photo in the first few pages of the National Dance Spirit Magazine, Dance Teacher Magazine, and Dance Studio Life Magazine next month.  We couldn’t be happier as a dance studio for this gracious gift from this one-of-a-kind dance competition!
