"All season including Nationals the judges were very precise about comments. Love that. I am a director who listens to the comments and then applies everything. Regionals got us ready for Nationals. The judges were very diverse. Each one saw something different. We had suggestions from judges as well. At regionals, one judge suggested we change the back drop and gloves. I would have never thought of that and it made a huge difference."
Diane Craig, Hebron High School Silver Wings
