     Welcome & Congratulations  to the 2020-2021 Barnegat HS Dance Team 

    Tryouts and camp were different this year, tryouts were virtual and we usually go away for camp  but because of COVID that was not going to be possible. We were lucky enough to be able to hold virtual tryouts and so grateful to have the UDA instructors come to us. When we were allowed to come together to practice it was wonderful seeing the girls have a sense of normalcy and be back  dancing together.  Congratulations on a successful camp! During our 3 day camp the girls earned their bid to the 2021 Nationals Dance Team Championship.  Bella Buscaglia, Rachel Cramer, Jess Holler, Ally McMahon, & Kira Smith auditioned and received medals and were given the title of All American Dancers. Kira Smith won the Drill Down Queen. Tara LaMantia & Kelly Quinn won Pin it Forward Awards for their positive atitudes and going above and beyond!  The team came away with 36 Blue Ribbons and a Superior Trophy.  These girls made Barnegat proud! Even though our season will be different this year we are so appreciative of any  opportunities that we are able to come together and dance . We are looking forward to dancing at home and away football games , basketball games and hopefully competing at local competitions in the winter.
