Monona Academy of Dance's RISING STARS!

A trio choreographed by Ashley Dahm and Chelsey Bradley and performed by three Monona Academy of Dance dancers, Regan Batterman, Frances Violante and Maggie Batterman was performed on Sunday evening the 28th of September on the Capital Theater Stage at the Overture Center Madison.  The performance was a part of the Overture Center's 10 year celebration and the finals of a competition entitled Overture's Rising Stars.  

A series of auditions were held between April and August 2014 at six regional locations.  The top 89 acts were invited to a Callback, in early September, on the Capital Theater stage and 24 finalists were named.  The trio "And She Was Perfect" was named a finalist!  At the conclusion of the performance on the 28th the trio and these dancers were named one of six Overture's Rising Stars.  Congratulations Dancers, Choreographers and Monona Academy of Dance Studio Owner, Jo Jean Retrum.
