"I just want to say what an amazing team we have! Not because we rocked the stage and performed wonderfully but because I saw a true team today. I saw girls encouraging each other, high fiving each other, cheering and helping each other, older girls looking out for younger, parents supporting not only their kids but other parents. So very proud of this team!!! Great job."
