Annual Competition Brings Together Dancers Of All Ages

Dancers showed off their skill, rhythm and flexibility at The 6th annual Willie Kruger Dance Competition in Duluth.

The competition is held to honor a fallen Break dancer, who loved different styles of dance, and believed everyone could find the joy in dancing together. It’s an open style competition with categories for different age groups. Some people danced in groups, while others performed solo.

“I think dance is a great way for self expression, to relieve stress, and to express yourself in ways that you might not be comfortable with otherwise. And it’s just a great way to come together and build community as well,” said Rassacin Ly, one of the Directors of Elite Family, a dance team.

Dancers had two minutes to perform, and were encouraged to bring at least 2 songs to perform.
