Cambridge Dance Team Takes On The Apollo - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Cambridge Dance Team Takes On The Apollo

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, MD - In just four days, a talented dance team from Cambridge, Maryland will be making history! Six lucky and very deserving girls, will be performing at the Apollo Theatre in New York next week.

The About Being Motivated dance team has been dancing together for just one year, but they're already making history, being the first to represent the city of Cambridge at the Apollo.

"I just cannot wait! I feel it in my shoes! I just can't wait to dance and warm up that stage," said dancer Ava McPhaul.

The team of six practiced their self-choreographed hip hop routines for two hours a day, seven days a week. Their dedication and hard work wowed the judges in their audition.

Owner Rhonda Meekins says, they were nervous watching the judges dismiss other performers. "Nobody was really making it. Everybody was 'Next. Next. Next.' But we got up there, and did really good and then the judge called me over and told us to come back."

It's the historic stage where stars like Jimmy Hendrix and The Jackson 5 made a name for themselves. And as ABM dances their way to the big apple on Wednesday, they're hoping to steal the show and get discovered!

"I can just feel that we're going to make it because we love each other," said Ava.

" Were kind of nervous then again we're feeling very excited 9:09 but we just have to get up there and do it" dancer Natale Chester explained.

Meekins says they are looking to grow! So if you are a girl between the ages of 8 and 19, and would like to join the team, you can sent her an email at abmdanceteam@gmail.com.
