Members of Russellville’s Addie’s Flip, Tip and Tap Dance Company recently traveled to Nashville to compete in Showstopper’s 2017 Regional Dance Competition held at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center.

Showstopper is one of the world’s first dance competition companies. It was founded more than 39 years ago as a way to provide dancers with an exciting stage to do what they love. The dancers are also pushed to be their best because they are provided with feedback by highly-qualified and experienced judges.

AFTT Company brought several entries to the show. Eight girls from the company entered divisions such as jazz, hip hop, tap, musical theatre and lyrical jazz.  

Ruby Harbin received a gold score and placed second in her division.

Cara Elliott scored platinum, was first in her division and was second place overall in her age group.  

Stella Hill scored gold and first place in her division.  

Peyton Parrish scored platinum, first in division and fifth place overall in her age group.
