BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) – Could an area high school bring home state hardware this weekend?

The Illinois High School Association will hold its first ever state dancing championships this weekend at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, with the preliminary rounds on Friday and the finals on Saturday. Dance teams from Fieldcrest and Streator are among 91 teams competing for the Competitive Dance state title. Fieldcrest and Streator are both in Class 1A.

On Friday and Saturday, the teams with as many as 28 members, will perform routines in a variety of dance styles, including jazz, hip hop, kick, or combinations of various styles. They will be judged on technique, choreography, synchronization, musicality, formations, transitions and overall effect.
