“Space Cadets” was unveiled as the theme of Elk River Dance Team’s high-kick for this season, with good results in its debut, Monday evening.
The ERDT placed first among five teams while hosting a Northwest Suburban Conference meet, dressed in silver and purple space suits and dancing to “Out of this World.”
The theme and uniform were chosen by head coach Alyssa Sha and her assistants. A group of ERDT leaders worked out the choreography.
Centennial placed second in ERDT’s group. The other five-school group was won by Maple Grove.
ERDT was hosting a conference meet for the first time since 2008-09.
This home conference meet was the first of two high-kick meets. The ERDT placed third in both conference jazz meets. Remaining in the conference season are another jazz meet Dec. 19 at Coon Rapids and the full conference meet with both dances Jan. 7 at Maple Grove.
