The Belles varsity dance team won the MDTA State Championship this past weekend, Feb. 29. This marks the third state win for the Belles, winning in both 2013 and 2019. As a team, they won first place in Precision Jazz, Pom, and had the overall highest GPA award. 

The Belles have dedication to this team like no other before, working hard and striving for every performance to be better than the last.

“I would say our season has been really successful because as a team I feel like our work ethic has been more consistent and more driven than ever before,” senior captain Aimee Weber said. 

All the girls on the team gave their all in every performance and have put in countless hours in order to get where they are now, two-time state champs. 

“I’m proud that our team has understood that in order to improve, it is essential to treat everything, from practices to performances to competitions, with the same amount of importance because when it comes to being on the Liberty dance team, there are no little things – it all counts,” Coach Amanda Miller said. 

The event as a whole was about more than just winning. It was about being together as a team and looking back on all the hard work the girls had put in this season.

“Honestly, that day I felt like our dances were the best we’ve ever done,” Weber said. “I was just happy about how we had finally danced together and to our best potential, and being able to win because of that was really rewarding.”

The Liberty Belles are showing up every season and are ready to keep pushing limits and making history. The Belles next step will be traveling to compete in nationals in Orlando, Florida during the first weekend in March.
