Emma Nix, one of 16 members of the Millard North High School dance team, recently entered and participated in a national dance competition.
The National Dance Team Championship, held in Orlando, Fla. at the Wide World of Sports Complex, included many high school dance teams from all over the United States. The competition was televised on ESPN2.
Nix’s team made it to the top 10, getting fifth place in poms and seventh place with their hip hop routine.
Last week, the dance team competed in the State of Nebraska competition, held in Grand Island, Neb. The girls were named state champion in both pom and hip hop.
Emma is the daughter of John and Joni Nix of Omaha, Neb., and granddaughter of Frank and Carol Fanning, of Bowling Green.
