Hip Hop success on the world stage

Earlier this month students Summer Earl and Jessica Dreyer competed at the world Hip Hop Championship in Phoenix, Arizona. Despite daily 40-degree temperatures the girls had a successful lead up to their event in the ‘megacrew’ division and their crew Republic qualified for semifinals. The crew improved their score in the semifinal performance and gained 15th place out of 47 crews overall.  Well done, Summer and Jessica!
