MADT Meeting and Student Convention 2011

This past Saturday the MADT hosted their semi-annual meeting and student convention at Chaska High School.  The convention was an exciting day for students to get a chance to meet other dancers from across MN and take some focused classes to improve their skills. Master class instructor Brandon Bryant (So You Think You Can Dance) was a huge hit, also doing a cameo as the elite jazz instructor.  Check out the pictures of the day below!
The coaches meeting passed 5 proposals which will now be brought forward to the appropriate MSHSL channels for passage.  They were on the following topics:  Judges recap sheets (2 items), scheduling of judges for section meets, scoresheet organization, and how section meets will be organized in a style known as “section finals”.  Please see MADT’s website or contact the board for further information on proposals.  (This information was edited on 11/8 by request of the MADT board)
Overall it was a great day for MN dance teams – first competitions are in 2 weeks!
