This past Saturday (12/4), the St. Charles West Dance Team, also known as the Tribe Line, placed second in prop and lyrical at their first competition at Lindbergh High School.  In the past, the dance team has had some notable victories at different competitions: including first place in their mix routine and dance routine at the Virtual Sugar Bear Competition earlier this year.

Over the summer, the Tribe Line participated in the annual NDA camp held in St. Louis Missouri, and managed to win the following awards: Team Performance Gold, Superior Award for Team Routine, Superior Award for Home Routine, National Championship bid, Spirit Award, Spirit Stick, two All American medalists, and every lady received a superior ribbon for their class.  At the state competition last year, the Tribe Line placed third overall in Division 2, making history with the third top 5 appearance in the last three years. The Tribe Line has also performed the dances they learned at camp at football games and school assemblies, which got them extremely positive feedback from both environments.

For the Tribe Line, this is just the beginning.  The competitions and performances that await in the future are bright, and St. Charles West cannot wait to see what the girls do next.
