The 10-member Enterprise High School dance team under the direction of Di Holt placed third in the small high school division at the Feb. 28 Hearts in Motion rhythmic dance competition held at Pendleton High School. An individual award went out to Linnaea Kibler who was named as a "Super Sensational" dancer.
This marked the 17th Annual Hearts in Motion competition and gave the Enterprise girls a finishing touch to a successful year of performing at home basketball games Their season lasted from November to March and included at least two months of practicing at 6:30 a.m.
The Hearts in Motion was especially meaningful for the 2003-04 troupe because they had no opportunity to participate at either district or state basketball tournaments.
Only dancing once during the competition, the girls combined three different routines and performed for about five minutes.
EHS competed against Powder Valley, Vale, Harper, La Grande and Marist.
This marked the fifth and final year of Holt's volunteer efforts with the dance team which she started in 1999. She has recognized the need to spend more family time in the future and is earnestly looking for someone to take her place.
"It has been such a great program for our kids," she says.
