FRAMINGHAM – Framingham High School’s dance team won the state championship in the hip-hop division on Tuesday night at Framingham High School

“The hiphop division, as well as the all-styles division, is fierce competition,” said head coach Angela Rodriguez.

“It’s always amazing to see the innovative ideas every team brings each season. As a team, we have so much respect for all of the teams who come to States, and the high level of competition inspires us to keep trying new things,” said the head coach.

The team is led by senior captains Alex Cahn and Jonalys Peña.

“The team truly became a family over the past few months. Especially with our five amazing seniors leaving us soon, it was really hard to end this season despite ending on such a high note. We have had so much fun this season that nobody wants it to be over,” said Rodriguez.

The other seniors on the squad are Scatlyn Dardompre, Gabriella Bortolotti, and Jessie Faulk.

The choreographer for this year’s program is Jackie Mackanich.
