The Wright State Emerald Jazz Dance team represented the University and Athletic Department by competing in the 2013 NDA College Dance Team National Championship. The dance team point total averaged 9.253 out of 10 finishing 4th out of 21 dance teams in the division. The “Open” division is defined by performing a dance genre of your choice. The team chose jazz and performed to medley of songs from the artist Aretha Franklin. The event was held this past weekend in Daytona Beach, Florida.
We salute the Emerald Jazz for their talent, hard work and dedication! Congratulations Kristin Burns, Dani Copeland, Brooke Grieshaber, Kendra Kerner, Maddie McAllister, Angela Root, Alexis Schwartz and Erin Shouse.
