Maddy Smietanski is a senior at Lockport Township and a member of the competitive dance team.

How would you describe competitive dance?

Well, now it’s called competitive dance, but it used to be called the poms team. It’s sort of a mixture of cheer and dance, but it’s more of a style. People think of it as an art form, but you’re judged on an entire team performance, not just as an individual.
