On Jan. 30, K-Motion took a flight out to Disney with expectations of placing at nationals, and they did exactly that.

Shortly after, on Saturday, Feb. 2, K-Motion took 16th in the final of the Game Day Division at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Fla., for the National Dance Team Championship with the Universal Dance Association.

The dance team competed in the small team pom category with a pom routine called “Troublemaker” and the Game Day Division with their national routine, including the Kearsley fight song, a drum cadence, and a pom dance to “Nonstop” by Drake.

This was the first time that K-Motion qualified for national competition.

Senior Mariah Ash said she was proud of her team.

K-Motion stands proudly with their national trophy. They placed 16th in the nation.

“It felt so honoring to be able to compete since K-Motion has never been to a national’s competition, ” Ash said.

Team captains, seniors Abby Bellmer and Mallory Simms, are proud of their team.

“We practiced very hard leading up to the competition and our efforts paid off,” Simms said. “We performed the best we ever had and proudly represented KHS on the national stage.”

This season, K-Motion had worked extra hard  in order to succeed on the national stage, and they feel relieved to know that their hard work has paid off.

Bellmer said the big stage was exciting.

“It was very nerve-racking. We didn’t know what to expect,” Bellmer said. “It was our first competition ever and just so happened to be the biggest.”
