Lisa Logan, owner/director of Show Biz Dance Studio in Muskogee, recently announced the achievements of one of her groups she taught and choreographed.     

The four-member character jazz group known as “Curly Shuffle” competed at Talent On Parade Regional Finals at the Performing Arts Center in Fort Smith, Ark. At that competition the jazz group was honored with the following awards:

• Elite Trophy in the 9- and 10-year-old Jr. Character Jazz in the Junior Age Division.

The group qualified for national finals which were held in June at the Tulsa Convention Center.

At the national level with more than 1,300 acts competing, the group won  Elite Trophy in the 9- and 10-year-old Character Jazz Division and were also honored with the Spotlight Special Judges Choice Award.  

The group also competed in past two years at Stage One Dance Competition National Finals in Branson Mo. At that competition, they were honored with a High Gold 1st Place and a 1st Place Overall High Points Award which qualified them to perform in the “Best of the Best Shoot Out Performance” where the best of 700 acts compete for the top awards. They were one of 10 groups chosen in the Petite Age Division to compete.
