Ah the beginning of December. To some, this means that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. To dancers, it means The Bridge Competition Series hosted by Team Millennia.

This year, The Bridge changed venues from Lakewood to Glendale High School. Instead of dancers getting ready in the locker room, class was in session as teams got their own classrooms to prepare throughout the day. Team Millennia sold out of their sweaters quickly, and rightfully so: THEY WERE FRESH. The food vendors were wonderful and yummy, as well as the vendors inside, including Kinjaz, Contour Hooligan, Rad is Rad, and our own Steezy photo booth – photos will be available on our Facebook page!

The Bridge Juniors on Saturday night proved a few things, but this is probably the best piece of advice:

Do not attend if you are old and have recurring nightmares of never fulfilling your dreams of becoming a child dance prodigy. These kids are really good. 

THE BRIDGE JUNIORS RESULTS:

1st Place – KABA KIDS
2nd Place – 3-23 AREA KIDZ
3rd Place – UNDERGROUND

And here’s our Bridge Juniors 2014 1st place winners with the front row camera, filmed by Gerald Nonato:

On Sunday, The Bridge for less jail bait – I mean The Bridge Dance Competition for major and collegiate teams offered a wide selection of entertainment. Every team brought their A+ game to the stage, and the vibes were fantastic.

COLLECTIVE FACTION basically gave us the most emotional roller coaster ride of our lives, and this was hands down the most dramatic part of my weekend.

BAD GIRLS CLUB made bad look so good, and they were JaMAICAN THE AUDIENCE GO WILD!

THE DAVID LEE PROJECT shmurdered it, all the way to the end.

The visual sympho909 was fantastic – talk about body language (hah)!

When FRENEMIES asked if they could lay by my side, next to meeEeEEeEee, I said, “OF COURSE, HERE IS MY PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS, AND SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.”

NSU seriously made us wonder if it might have been better to be on the bleachers instead of being cheer captain… (THAT PART MADE ME SO SCARED).

CADC hypnotized us with their flooreography, and was awarded 3rd place! Congratulations CADC!

220 killed it, landing them 2nd place! Congratulations 220!

And ACA took 1st place this weekend at The Bridge, their second win this season and their first placing at a major competition in SoCal!

It’s like ACA was saying, “Don’t speak, please don’t, just hold on don’t say anything wait, ok now you can speak.”

If there was a way to squash a bug and look cool at the same time, I’m pretty sure this is what it would look like.

“Hair done? Nails done? Nothing popping out of my outfit? Ok I’m ready.”

Oh won’t you, sway with me? Just kidding.

We StuckWitU til the end ACA.

Is this the proper way to roll up to a party with the whole squad on point?

We don’t want to smoke! But you guys were on fire… hah!

Everyone is a potential candidate to sit on my dashboard as a bobbling doll. Everyone.

Congratulations ACA on taking 1st at The Bridge Competition Series 2014 hosted by Team Millennia!

THE BRIDGE RESULTS:

1st Place – ACA
2nd Place – 220
3rd Place – CADC

We thought it would be pretty fitting to relate this post back to one the Bridge Dance Competition Series wrote for us about what dance competitions mean to dancers. Check out the post here!
