Who they are: 801 Squad is a group of dancers from Center Stage Performing Arts Studio, a ballroom fusion dance company, which was named “Studio of the Year” by The Dance Awards in 2012. All the dancers are trained in Ballroom, Hip Hop, Jazz, Contemporary, Musical Theater, and Ballet.

Who had fun this weekend at 24 Seven Dance? Me! ?? I got to compete and take 4th place overall in my new solo, take the most amazing classes with some of my faves, received a nonstop dancer runner-up scholarship plus compete and dance with my best friends. It was a great weekend and my heart is so full. Great way to start the competition season. Thank you @caspers208 @chizzlebod @samijowilliams for all that you do. I love my life. #lifeofadancer #24sevendance #centerstageutah #teamcurry #teamlebron #chizzlesquad #801squad #opticalillusion
