WALNUT, CA—Congratulations to the Walnut High School Dance Team on their 1st Place Award at the USA Dance National competition.

The talented 26-member team competed in five dance divisions: Open Lyrical, Open Large Dance, Open Prop, Championship Kick, and Championship Intermediate Dance. 

The team took home a 1st Place trophy, banner, and backpacks in the Open Lyrical dance division. 

They took 2nd Place in the Open Large Dance, 3rd Place in Open Prop, and 5th Place in Championship Kick.
