Laura Berg Olsen Announces Her Retirement From Judging

A big thanks to Laura for all her years of service!  You will be missed by all of dance team…..


A message from Laura Berg Olsen:

    • After 26 years of judging MN High School Dance Team, I’m announcing my retirement. I have been involved with dance for all but 6 years of my life and am very grateful to all of the talented, professional, committed women of integrity I have judged with! Thanks to all of the coaches who have led such talented dancers to perform so many incredible performances over the years… MN dance is the BEST and much of the credit is due to you! Thank you also to all of the administrators, sound guys, announcers and meet personnel for all of their hard work at the many dance team meets I’ve officiated at. You’ve made my job as a superior judge so much easier. I am very appreciative to the MSHSL which has offered so much support to me as the State Rules Coordinator and Supervisor of Officials at the State Tournament, as well as the other Rules Coordinators, Lisa Naylor Hart, Missy Cloutier Tutewohl, Katie Kasat Ohlund and previously, Sherry Mergens. A special thanks to my JAM Sista’s for all of the hard work, time, energy and commitment to start and grow our fantastic association! I have appreciated all of the support you’ve given during my 15+ years of training our judges! Too many words and emotions to thank everyone and to remember so many great moments so I’ll just say, that I’ve had the time of my life and will miss the great comaraderie of so many fine and talented people!
