The Melissa Marie Dance Team will be heading to a national competition soon.
A pep rally was held Monday at Secrest Auditorium for the girls, before they head to Myrtle Beach for the Stars Systems National Talent Competition on July 18th. Although some of the girls are a little bit nervous, most are excited for the opportunity.
"Our hard work is finally paying off." said Instructor Melissa Berga "Our girls have worked really hard these past ten months, and we are ready. We're just ready."
Berga says the girls have practiced their routines twice a week and gone to various competitions throughout the year to get them prepared for the national competition. They have already won several competitions, and Berga says she has a good feeling about Nationals.
