Fallon swing dancers bring home awards

Staff Report

The Fallon Swing Competition Ballroom Team went to the Gem State Classic National Championship last month in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and brought home several well earned trophies, medals and ribbons.

To place at any level in the competition is a victory as the dancers must compete against hundreds of other couples and teams from all over the West Coast.

The team said it's working diligently on a new dance, which it will perform for the first time in public at its Spring Showcase at 6 p.m. May 5 in the Churchill County High School gymnasium. Tickets will be sold for $5 each at the door.

Winners from National Championships and Dancing With the Stars will also be performing along with all the other local swing teams.
