UVSC dance team finishes 4th in a world championship

Students at Utah Valley State College know how to kick up their heels.

A team of dancers from the Orem college this month won awards in three categories to finish with the fourth-place overall trophy at the Country Dance World Championship in Nashville, Tenn."We were really a respected team throughout the competition," said Connie Reynolds, dance team adviser and chairwoman of UVSC's health and physical education department.

The Utah students competed against 30 teams from the United States, Canada, England, Germany and the Netherlands. The group performed the East Coast swing, the cha-cha, two-step, West Coast swing, a theatrical cabaret piece and a Viennese waltz.
