"Believe The Impossible." This was not Civic Memorial's Pazzazz Dance Team's motto, but it perfectly described their journey through the 2013-2014 competition season. After many setbacks, trials, and tribulations, Pazzazz Dance Team competed last weekend at their state competition in Peoria, Illinois. Not only did they win first place in Pom, Open Dance, and Lyrical. They were also crowned "Grand Champions" of 1A dance. Along with this, they made Pazzazz Dance Team history by being the first ever team to be named first place in pom. Following this competition their title count is 21 first place titles state-wide and 2 national titles.
