Congrats to the Palmetto Youth Center’s Trojans Midget Dance Team.
They were second-place winners at the Southeast Region Cheer/Dance Championships, qualifying for the National Championships in Orlando Dec. 4–7.
This is the Trojans Dancers second trip to nationals in the last three years.
More than 200 teams competed at the Regional Championship in Orlando over Thanksgiving weekend.
“The dancers, along with their coaches and parents, should be congratulated,” said Chris Lukowiak, the PYC executive director. “Their hard work has paid off and they’ve brought great recognition to all of us in Manatee County.”
The PYC, 501 17th. St. W., will be holding fundraisers to help cover the cost of transportation, meals and lodging for nationals.
“We are dedicated to ensuring the girls will be able to continue in the competition,” said PYC athletic director Tony Stephens. “We couldn’t be more excited for the girls and hope the community will help us to support them.”
There will be Dollar Day Yard Sales on 3-5 p.m. Friday and 7–11 a.m. Saturday.
