In 2019, the Sapphire’s attended the St. Charles Classic Competition for the first time in Lutheran History. There they competed in the Dance Lyrical category and placed third. The Sapphire’s are very proud of this achievement and look forward to future competitions. That Summer, the Sapphire’s traveled to Southeast Missouri State for dance camp held by the Universal Dance Association. During the four day camp, the girls learned dances of various styles and difficulty levels, participated in technique class, and earned a Superior Rating for their Team Routine.
