Championship dance team sets public show

A rare opportunity to see the In Motion Elite Competition Dance Team perform back in its own hometown is rapidly approaching at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, June 10 at Plymouth High School, when the team will present more than 20 acts normally seen only on the regional or national competition stage.

Forty-seven Elite team dancers, age 6 through 18, will offer a fast-paced performance featuring a range of dance styles including jazz, lyrical, tap, ballet, production line, hoop, clogging, contemporary and hiphop. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.hometowntickets.com for $10 each and will be available at the door for $12 each.

This spring, the Elite Competition Team traveled to three regional competitions – Starbound in Madison, Thunderstruck in Green Bay and Celebration in Milwaukee – capturing numerous awards and placing in the top three of various divisions more than 20 times. One particular honor which meant a great deal to the entire team was winning the Spirit Award from the Starbound Competition, as the one studio out of dozens there that best exemplified camaraderie, positivity, sportsmanship and teamwork.

“I’m proud of all our dancers, coaches, choreographers and volunteers, who are continually encouraging each other, surpassing limits and achieving new things,” says studio owner Amanda Kanzelberger. “For example, one area of tremendous growth for us this year was in the presentation of solos, duets and trios, which more than tripled in number since last competition season. We are also excited that for the first time, almost all our individual and group acts are advancing to national level competition.”

In mid-July, most members of the team will travel to St. Charles, Illinois to compete in the Starbound National Talent Competition.

Kanzelberger is in the process of building a new, much larger studio at Kiley Way in Plymouth, behind the current location. Faculty member Sara Kurtz has been named team manager for the 2017-18 competition season.

The studio has also launched a creative collaboration by welcoming to the Elite Competition Team faculty professional dancer Morgan Williams. A Chicago native, he attended Chicago Academy for the Arts, started performing with numerous concert companies at age 18, was featured on Season 10 of “So You Think You Can Dance” and is a co-founder and choreographer for SueMo: A Dance Experience, Milwaukee’s newest contemporary dance company.
