Meet CCC’s March Spotlight Team.
DREAM TEAM SENIOR HIP HOP
Dream Team All Stars is based out of Warren, Ohio
This routine has been such fun to watch this year. It’s Hip Hop meets One who Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest! These girls really sell this routine and lead you to believe that they have truly lost their minds. Their performance has a great variety of dance moves and visuals that are a true crowd pleaser.
How does this team start their season? The Senior Hip Hop team started this past June with team selections, followed by choreography and practices in September.
Dream Team Hip Hop Accomplishments this 14 – 15 Season: Accomplishments this year include 1st Place Victories at every event this season, earning a FULL PAID BID to the US Finals and American Majestic Grand Champion. An attributing factor to this team’s success is that most of these teammates have been cheering/dancing together for the past 6 years.
What rituals does this team have before taking the floor at an event? Coach Michelle raps “Shoop” by Salt-n-Pepa, they stand in a groups and give each other pep talks. Anita, Senior, does a Free Style dance that she says, ” is Pretty Good, I’m not going to lie.” The team dances and laughs together to stay relaxed and loose. Brandi, team member, raps “The Motto.”
Coaches Favorite Part of the Routine: Watching the girls tell the story! Their faces show the drive and commitment to the style. Our routine is like no other and that’s what makes it Fun for them.
Girls Favorite Part of the Routine: Brandi enjoys when she and her partner Rylee do 2 stalls throughout the routine. Allyssa likes the ending when they yell “Black” and the tutting section. Jenna enjoys the Partner Tricks, “I think they are Fun and Unpredictable.” Finally, Anita likes the part when she gets to shake her booty.
We asked the athletes what they look forward to most in the season?
Jenna: Performing with my team, traveling to different places, US Finals and having fun with my best friends and mom.
Brandi: Spending time with my best friends and making the best memories that I will cherish throughout my life.
Allyssa: I look forward to going out and winning with my teammates.
Anita: Honestly, the practices, even though full outs are not a good time, I share an unbreakable bond with these girls and they never fail to put a smile on my face. I also look forward to every competition where I leave my heart on the mat for 2 minutes and 30 seconds with my family.
Any other comments you would like to share about your team/coaches?
Jenna: My team is a family and they are sisters to me, they are my best friends. I am thankful to be on that mat with them. My coaches are role models and truly made me not only an athlete, but helped me become who I am today.
Brandi: We as a team, couldn’t be any happier with our coaches and we are very blessed to have them with us through this journey.
Allyssa: I Love them to death and I’m so upset it’s my last year – my coaches are the best.
Anita: They are more than just my team, they are my family. Each girl plays a huge role on this team and I am blessed to have them in my life. I also have one of THE BEST COACHES in the WORLD. No one compares to her. I only hope to grow up to be like her one day.
The Coaches predict a trip to The Dance Worlds in their near future. I believe them.
Dream Team’s Senior Hip Hop will be closing out their season at the US Finals in Virginia Beach. Good Luck to them and wish them much continued success.
