Performing at 3 p.m. on the Main Stage, IGNITE Dance and Yoga’s nationally recognized team dancers are going to share some of their award-winning routines at the North Bend Block Party.

Dancers ages 6 to 19 will demonstrate jazz, tap, lyrical, contemporary, and hip- hop styles.  Many of these dancers are just back from nationals in Seaside, Ore., bringing home awards including “Outstanding Choreography,” “Creative Concept,” Spotlight’s “Technical Award,” and even scoring in the top of the overall event.

This group of dancers travel to regional and national level competitions throughout the year, so the block party is a great opportunity for the dancers to perform locally for their community, instructor Katie Black says. IGNITE team dancers rarely pass up a chance to be onstage—every moment helps prepare them for their future, no matter what they pursue.
