1st song: “My Blue Heaven”

We were only scheduled for two songs, but the judges need one more. Head judge Sylvia Sykes made the call for a slower song to de-emphasize pre-planned choreography and tricks and “make them dance.”
3rd song: “I Would Do Anything For You”
1st Place – Nick Williams & Carla Heiney
2nd Place – Max Pitruzezlla & Annie Trudeau
3 rd Place- Jeremy Otth & Laura Keat
