Top sports stories 2009, No. 8: Area dance teams excel
The Cannon Falls dance team tried something new and wound up with the same result -- a Class A state dance team title in the high kick/precision division.
Cannon Falls added a second routine in 2009. The team opened the year performing a fun, simple routine.
As an added benefit, it also was a strenuous cardio routine.
In January, the team switched to a more technically precise routine that it had been working on all along.
