The Shorecrest Hip Hop team recently took First-Place at the WIAA State Dance/Drill Championships (Washington Interscholastic Athletics Association) in the Hip Hop and Show category on March 27. This was their first year competing in the Show category and the team was excited to be State Champions in two events this year (Hip Hop and Show). 

Jessica Le of Shorewood won first place in the state 4A Drill Down competition, and Shorewood was second in the military category, fifth in kick and sixth in show.

But before the State Championships, the Shorecrest team traveled to New York City for the Champion Dance Nationals where they brought home 3 First-Place trophies in the Small and Medium Hip Hop category as well as being named the overall hip hop category winner. Shorecrest Hip Hop has had a very successful season of dance. 

The team is led by co-captains Emiko Minatoya-Shields and Christina Kim with coach Rex Kinney and community volunteer adviser Robin Martin.

The team would especially like to thank all those businesses, SC Boosters, Shorecrest community, friends, and family who have helped and supported the team all season.
