Sixteen states represented 650 performances and more than 18,000 dancers competed, Buchholz said.
Even though the team brought home major awards for D.C. Everest, Buchholz said it's not about trophies or awards, its about teamwork on the dance floor.
"Our team did win but we do not win all the time and not every event," she said. "Life and dancing are not about the feeling of the trophy or standing on the podium. It's about the team and the feeling on the dance floor.”
The team then competed at the State competition in La Crosse and earned 3rd in Pom and 5th in Kick.
"We knew Nationals was going to be a huge challenge for us, so we have spent the month of February in the weight room and working on our flexibility," Buchholz said. "We worked on healing some hamstring tightness and the hard work paid off."
The team will return to Wisconsin Tuesday night.
