The Placerita Ballroom Dance Team from Placerita Junior High School in Newhall recently competed at the High Desert Dance Classic in the Dancing Feet Youth Ballroom program held at Antelope Valley College.

The Dancing Feet Program is a youth ballroom program designed to teach seventh and eighth grade students ballroom and Latin dances.

This was Placerita’s fifth year in the competition joining the group of Antelope Valley schools participating in the program and competition.

Professional ballroom teachers provided the teachers at each participating school dance instruction.

The teachers were then responsible to teach their students the five ballroom and Latin dances.
