The Washtenaw Community College Dance Team won first place in the pompon category at the University of Michigan dance competition held recently at the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor. Approximately 30 schools participated in the competition. The team also placed seventh in the Mid- American Pompon competition at Michigan State University.

“The WCC Dance team has come far since its inception just two years ago,” said coach Shea Richards, a former dancer for the Detroit Pistons. “They are a true definition of a team, good students and very proud to represent the college at dance competitions. It has been a joy watching them develop friendships, progress with their dance routines and learn the value of working together.”
