Kansas Wesleyan University hosted the first KCAC dance conference of the competition season called the Coyote Classic in the Mabee Arena last Friday. Two other universities were also in attendance, competing against our girls, Mcpherson College in Mcpherson, Kansas and Bethel College in Newton, Kansas.
It was an exciting day for the dancers of these schools, the energy was high and the smiles were contagious. It was a great experience to witness. Kansas Wesleyan University dance came out in first place, with a final score of 63.7! Bethel College followed in second place with a final score of 45.2 and Mcpherson coming in last with a score of 40.4.
Madison Kratz of KWU Dance had a lot of positive things to say about this event. “I was originally on the cheer team and auditioned for the dance comp team and made it. I feel so connected to this team and was happy I got to be a part of this win for us. Dancing brings me so much joy and I’m super excited to see how far we can go this season.”
There are many competitions to be had this season, with traveling involved. KWU Dance has a lot of talent, including their coach, Claire Schmidt. This team has come a long way and isn’t done yet! Go Coyotes!
