For the third year in a row, the Becker High School Dance Team (BDT) are the Mississippi 8 Conference Champions in both kick and jazz.
Coach Nadia Fischer-Danzeisen recounts the week leading up to the championship meet as stressful due to athletes and coaches being out sick.
“Although it was stressful, I was very impressed with how well the team handled the adversity,” she said.
The team has one more regular season competition at Monticello Sat., Jan. 29 and then will be heading into the postseason. The section tournament will be at Sauk Rapids High School Feb. 5.
The Becker team is currently ranked second in both kick and jazz in their section and with the top three teams advancing to the state tournament, the odds look good for Nadia’s girls.
“Our plan is to stay focused on ‘our game’ and controlling the controllables,” Coach Fischer-Danzeisen said when asked what the team’s game plan was.
“We have the talent and work ethic to do well. We just need to maintain any pressures or anxieties that come with such a big day. Fortunately, we have a veteran team who knows what to expect.”
