The Varsity Golden Girls represented Oakville High School with style and grace at the 2017 NDA Nationals in Orlando, FL. last weekend!  For their 4th trip to this prestigious competition, the Golden Girls brought home two national titles. They ranked fourth in the nation with their mix routine and ninth in the nation with their pom routine. Each dancer gave their all and left everything on the floor. Oakville High School and the Mehlville School District couldn’t be prouder.

Oakville High School is excited to announce the new Golden Girls coach – Kayla Hall!  Calling South County [Lindbergh area] her hometown, Hall is an alumni of Cor Jesu Academy and brings a strong and varied dance background to the Tiger’s dance squad.  In college, Hall perused a degree in accounting with a minor in dance while performing for the Rebelette’s at the University of Mississippi.  Her path changed and Hall had the opportunity to move to New York where she was a Radio City Rockette for 3 years.  Shifting again, Hall moved to Florida to dance for the Orlando Magic in the NBA for 3 more years.  In addition, her experience at the Muny and Ballet Companies have helped to provide her with a multitude of dance and choreography background.  Oakville is excited for the new opportunities and the upcoming season!

Camp 2014 was an EPIC success!  The Tiger GG’s had a great time, learned much and was well reward for their hard work:

UDA All Americans:  Olivia, Nicole, Abby, Sabrina, Sara, Catherine!
1st Home Routine… beating out Timberland for 2nd and Hillsboro for 3rd CLICK HERE
Superior Trophy for having the highest percentage of blue ribbons for A, B, and C routine evaluations.
Team Drill Down Award for having the highest percentage of yellow ribbons.  Golden Girls were always standing at the end.
In addition, Cara won Drill Down Queen!!  Cara was the “last woman standing” at the very end.  We all wanted this so much for Cara, as she was the shining star of drill downs throughout the entire camp.  Drill downs are pressure-packed, so winning this award is an outstanding achievement.
Cara
We earned a spirit stick every night at camp and one on the last day to take back to Oakville.
Finally, we won the UDA Leadership Award.  Each team was asked, “If you could be on any other team besides your own, what team would you want to be on?”  This team was to show leadership skills throughout the week, endorsing positive character and work ethic. = Oakville was Legendary!

For the first time since its inception in 1974, Oakville High School’s Golden Girls can add nationally ranked to its title.  The sixteen-member team recently traveled to Orlando, Florida to compete in the National Dance Alliance national competition.   Competing in the large varsity division, the girls advanced to finals in both routines they had prepared.  Oakville took fifth in large varsity mix and eighth in large varsity jazz, deemed the most highly contested by the NDA organization.

This is the first time the OHS Golden Girls have competed at the national level, qualifying for this prestigious competition at summer camp last June.  The girls put forth tremendous effort all season long in order to achieve the accomplishment of ranking top five in the nation amongst large varsity teams.
