Some of the top schools in California will be on hand to open the 2012 season. Locally, teams from Hart, Saugus, Valencia and Golden Valley high schools will participate.

“This is a great opportunity to watch some very elite teams compete here in the Santa Clarita Valley,” Valencia adviser Michelle Brown said. “We’re very excited to be hosting an event of this caliber.”

Along with team routines, there will also be a solo competition.

“These young people are amazing dancers,” Valencia coach Trevor Lynskey said. “Most, if not all of them, have been performing since they were very young. It’s inspiring to see how talented and gifted they are.”
