The Ascension Catholic High School Sunshine Girls dance team recently attended Universal Dance Association (UDA) camp at McNeese State University in Lake Charles.

The girls placed first with their home routine and also received a superior trophy for overall performances, which qualified the girls for the National Dance Team Competition held annually in Orlando, Florida.

Seniors Mary Dubreuil, Katie Gianelloni, Emily Latino and Candace Joffrion were selected  as UDA All-Stars, thus giving them the opportunity to dance in the New Year's Day Parade in Paris.

Also, senior members were invited to dance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.

The Sunshine Girls would like to thank everyone who so generously supports them throughout the year.
