The trophy that IGNITE's student dancers brought back from competition in February is so big, it's taller than many of the kids.

The performance crew from IGNITE Dance and Yoga studio in North Bend did well at the KAR (Kids Artistic Revue) Dance Competition, held Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 8 and 9, at Foster High School in Tukwila. They won the award for Top Intermediate Studio, beating all comers in the intermediate level from the Pacific Northwest.

In a standout performance, IGNITE's Senior Lyrical group, dancing to the song "Medicine" by Daughter, won the People's Choice Award. The video of this routine will now compete to be a finalist, with voting in June. Dancers in this routine are Kira Jerome, Cameron Washington, Jodie Howson-Watt, Erin Horne, Jessie Reed, Katie Engdahl, Erin Walker, Zoe Thompson, Katelyn Stewart, and Abi Wall.  Choreography was by Katie Black. Check out a video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25O70XD_JGM.

IGNITE Competition Team's next competition is Spotlight Dance Cup, April 25, 26, and 27, at Highline Performing Arts Center in Burien. IGNITE hopes to qualify at this regional competition for summer nationals in Seaside, Ore.
