Several youngsters from the St. Croix Valley were among those representing DelMonico Dance of Woodbury at the Legacy Dance Championships in Orlando, Fla., on July 6-10.

Area dancers among the approximately 100 competing for DelMonico Dance included Jayne Mapstone, Sophie Mapstone, Riley Carlson, Gabby O’Reilly, Avery Housley, Grace Hildrum, Brooke Jackson, Adrea Faschingbauer, Ellie Smith and Carley Milanovich. A total of 10 competition teams from DelMonico Dance traveled to Orlando. The club received the 12-and-under Legacy Award, which is presented to the studio whose total routines in the national competition had the highest cumulative scores for its dancers in the petite and mini age categories. The Meteor group (age 9-10) finished first overall for jazz dance Twinkle Twinkle and the Sunray group (age 3-8) placed third for jazz dance CanCan.
