Back Handspring Clinic


Hannah Smith, a 10 year student of McKeon Dance Center has been chosen by the International Dance Organization to represent the IDO at the World Tap Dance Championships! The competition will be held in Riesa, Germany in December and will include dancers from 35 countries and five continents.

To be selected to compete at the IDO World Tap Championships, Hannah had to first qualify at a regional event where she won a platinum medal at the Headliners Dance Competition. She then had to submit a video dance to audition with IDO, and was then selected from thousands of other audition and video performances.

Once in Germany, Hannah will have to advance through four rounds of competition in order to bring home the gold. She is competing in the junior soloist division with a tap style performance to the music entitled "Flight Of The Bumblebee"

Hannah is proud to represent the US Tap Team and is looking for your support through either company sponsorship or donations. Please email leannesmith@charter.net for information.

We are very excited for Hannah and wish her the best of luck!!
