Junior Dance's C-Star Is The Future

The Junior Dance division is always a fan favorite because it’s an opportunity to see the future of dance. Don’t be fooled by their ages—these kids can do everything that the older dancers can do, and sometimes even more. The most interesting thing about the division is it encompasses different genres of dance, requiring teams to be versatile. 

The gold medalists for this season preserved the tradition of Japanese teams coming out on top out of all of the Juniors. C-Star came to Orlando with a Pom routine that was built to dominate, and it did just that. They performed what was easily one of the most difficult and clean Pom routines of the entire weekend, regardless of age. The level of uniformity that they were able to achieve was absolutely mind-blowing, and it had the crowd on the edge of their seats the entire time. The sections where they incorporated speedy ripples were done to perfection, and their leaps demonstrated wonderful flexibility and lines. There were many amazing performances throughout the weekend, but this one will stand out as one of the best of the entire competition.

The silver medal is also going home to Japan with SPG Cheerdance Project – H Beat Beans. They, too, performed a Pom routine, and it had very similar levels of perfect technique as their fellow Japanese competitor. Their team was a little bit smaller, so they were able to really showcase each individual’s abilities throughout the routine. Their formation changes where widespread and very difficult, which was very impressive.

Closely behind them in third was Dancer’s Edge Studio, who performed a very powerful Jazz piece. Routine highlights included some incredibly fast turn sequences, and some beautiful flexibility elements, including some stunning isolations right off the top of the routine.

Also finishing in the top 5 was the Dancin’ Bluebonnets with a beautiful Lyrical/Contemporary piece with a lot of beautiful floor movement and flexibility elements. Closing out the rest of the top 10 were: Mt. Eden Ballet Academy (New Zealand), Academia de Baile Seven Dancers (Mexico), Dancing Dream Center Mexico (Mexico), Team Russia – Zvezdy (Russia), and Reign Elite – Lady Royals (Australia), who finished sixth through tenth, respectively. 

The Nations Cup was also awarded to the top scoring team from the five highest-ranking nations. That award went to: Team Russia (5th), Academia de Baile Seven Dancers (4th), Mt. Eden Ballet Academy (3rd), Dancer’s Edge Studio (2nd), and C-Star (1st). 

Congratulations to all of the teams that competed in the Junior Dance division at The 2019 Dance Worlds. If what we saw from them is the future of dance, then we are in good hands. Cheers to the new World Champions, C-Star!
