However, as grateful as they are to be rewarded such prestigious results, their main priority remains - keep improving! "We try to get better by being honest in our movement and hope that as we develop as people and dancers, our product reflects that too. We enjoy sharing our love for dancing with everyone, and want to lead by example; to encourage others to work hard, dream big, and believe in themselves!"
