Weekend Overall Winners- LADA History was made this Weekend!

Madison Guarino from the Elite Team was the 2018 Winnipeg 

Thunderbolt Solo Challenge Champion!

  • Students in this category had to compete 3 solo’s within the Thunderbolt Rockstar Category and the scores of the 3 solo’s were averaged to give the final winner. There were 15 other strong soloists in this category and this was a HUGE achievement not only for Madison but for our studio to receive such a prestigious title. Way to go Madison!
