Background

The West Springfield Dance Team, also known as WSDT, is from West Springfield High School in Springfield, Virginia. Led by coaches/choreographers/creative directors Tara Perez and Jason King, this competitive dance team of 17 dancers is a group of hard-working, humble individuals, whose tight knit bond brings them together as one family.

WSDT is known for their performance-based hip-hop routines, which include many different styles of hip hop. Their performances are not just about the dance moves, but also about pulling the audience in to experience the story they are trying to tell. 1
