More than 900 girls ages 9 to 18 donned their flashiest outfits and brought their best moves to the annual TEAMDance Illinois regional Wauconda Invitational on Sunday. Fifty-five teams from around the Chicago area descended on Wauconda High School to qualify for the TEAMDance Illinois State championships.

The teams were composed of an average of 17 girls each and performed routines to music of their choice. The music ranged from Sesame Street's Ernie singing his rubber ducky song to main stream hip hop music. Each team tried to stand out with their own individual looks and choreography.
