During this winter Olympic month Carlsbad Lancer Dancers have won a bronze medal of their own for their performance at the National Dance Team Championships at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Orlando Florida’s Disney World February 6-7, 2010.

The 11 member varsity team flew out with two substitute coaches and 28 family members to cheer them on. . . Carlsbad’s Varsity Dance Team, The Lancer Dancers, placed 3rd overall in the nation, in the Hip Hop competition with a dance choreographed by Erik Saradpon. . . “When they called our team we were so excited! We so wanted to bring a medal home for Carlsbad.”, said Lani Yamanaka, Lancer Dancer. As a Bronze Medal winner, they were interviewed in the locker room by ESPN and their performance will be aired later this month on ESPN2.

Congrats to all the girls. Nice work. We don’t usually watch Dance competitions on ESPN, but for this one we will make an exception. Click here and search for “Carlsbad” to watch all the performances.
