The Bismarck High School Demonettes are going to Orlando, Fl this weekend to compete at the National Dance Alliance Competition in Universal Studios.

The Demonettes, made up of 12 dancers, will attend NDA Nationals for the third year in a row. They will compete in four different categories: High Kick, Pom, Jazz and Hip Hop.Last year, the Demonettes became the only team from North Dakota (and most states) at NDA to make all four category finals.

Don't let their small size fool you, the Demonettes had a very successful season which included a number of first place trophies. They were also runners-up in the Hip-Hop division at the Spirit of America competition at the Mall of America. On top of their success, the Demonettes were invited to perform at the University of Minnesota 'Best of the Best' show.

The Bismarck Demonettes were established in 1962 as one of the first drill teams in the state. This dedicated group of girls start their season during the summer perfecting a routine to compete with at NDA camp, where they qualify for the national competition. The Demonettes don't slow down as they continue to build their endurance and learn routines for competition season.

The Demonettes are coached by Jennifer Holwegner and HOT 97-5's Lauren Bjork, both past Demonettes. They are excited to return to NDA nationals to compete against some of the best teams in the nation.
