By Grant Morgan, News Editor

The UA Ballroom Dance Competition Team returned from a tournament last weekend yielding impressive results.

The team competed in the University of Michigan Ballroom Competition on Saturday, April 11.

Each event in this tournament was called a “heat,” which comprised three rounds, quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals. The amount of couples in each heat successively dwindled, as judges chose those couples they thought best to move to the next round. Each heat began with around 130 couples; the final round comprised six couples.

Robert Wagner and Alyssa Reese made it to the second round in Bronze Viennese Waltz; Bronze International Samba, Foxtrot, Jive; Newcomer International Quickstep, Tango; and American Cha-cha. The couple also made it to quarterfinals in Newcomer International Waltz and Newcomer American Foxtrot; and semifinals in Newcomer American Waltz and Newcomer American Tango.
