KNOWLESVILLE – These dancers from Lisa’s Dance Boutique in Holley, including Charley London (center), perform “Sing, Sing, Sing” during the Talent Show on Monday at the Orleans County 4-H Fair. The group came in fourth in the Maxi Division (over age 13).

Participants performed on a new permanent stage that is part of an addition on the Curtis Pavilion. Dancers did tap, jazz, contemporary, hip hop and other styles.

Dancers from Lisa’s took five of the top six places, including first, in the Maxi Division. A group from Dance Theater in Medina won third place. Nearly all of the acts qualified to go to the State Fair in Syracuse in late August.

This group earned an honorable mention in Maxi for “Insomnia.”

This group performed “Hey Queen” in the Mini Division (12 and under) and won an honorable mention.

Ava Jurs and Dallas Ecker perform “Do Your Thing” in the Mini Division. They are part of Dance Reflections by Miss Heather in Albion.

The Bruning sisters – Aubrey, 7, and Sylvia, 5 – sing “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood. They are from Barre.

These Mini dancers perform “Who You Gonna Call” from Ghostbusters, and won fourth place in the Talent Show.
