Acts competing for prizes in DuPage Co. Fair talent show
For six young hip-hop dancers, making the finals of the DuPage County Fair talent show isn't just about winning -- it's about proving they are "rock stars."
At the July 12 preliminary competition, the girls of Aspirations Dance Company in Lombard wowed judges with their "Rockstar" routine, which featured the girls sporting colorful faux mohawks, Ed Hardy motorcycle T-shirts and ripped denim.
After placing in the top nine acts in the junior division, Nicolette and Tori Dominick, Jordan Cimmarusti, Jade Whaley, India Garner and Veronica Catanese will compete Saturday for a cash prize and the chance to represent DuPage County in the January 2010 Illinois Association of Agricultural Fairs competition in Springfield.
"These girls have so much energy, and they really know how to entertain," said Kelly Callese, artistic director at Aspirations Dance Company.
