The MMHS Ellevés Drill Team competed at the Contest of Champions National Dance Competition held in Orlando, Florida on March 2, 2013. The team competed in the following categories: Military, Jazz Dance, Kick, and Hip Hop.  There were 40 teams competing at the competition, including two top 5A teams from Utah.

The Ellevés placed 2nd in Hop Hop, 3rd in Kick, and 3rd in Military. The Ellevés were also awarded a choreography award for their kick routine. Overall, the Ellevés were one of the top ten teams. Because of this, they have been invited to perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

While in Orlando, the Ellevés also had the opportunity to see the Cirque de Soleil show, “La Nouba” at Downtown Disney. They visited Walt Disney World. Their trip was very rewarding and wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the parents that traveled with the group as chaperones! 

The Ellevés have had a very successful competition season this year. Now the team will prepare for their annual showcase which will be held on May 3 in the MMHS auditorium. The showcase will feature all of the team’s competition routines as well as a few new routines. The new 2013-14 Ellevés will also perform. Plan now to attend and see some award-winning routines performed by an amazing team!
