High school students from across Illinois participated in the state’s first ever champions in competitive dance over the weekend.  Metro-East Lutheran won in the 1A division, with Civic Memorial a close second.  IHSA's Tracie Henry says contrary to what some believe, dance is a sport.  

Henry comments

Two hundred-43 schools participated in the first-ever state series in competitive dance.  Several of them took home championship titles.  Crystal Lake Central won in 2A, with Triad High School 6th.  Maine South won in 3A.
