The Tigers are coming off a 2023-2024 season in which they took first place in Hip Hop in all the regular season competitions, but settled for second at the state championship competition at Vergennes Union High School.

On Saturday, the Tigers topped second-place South Burlington in Hip Hop, with Mount Mansfield in third and Burr & Burton Academy in fourth.

In Pom, South Burlington topped the table, with the Tigers in second, followed by Burr & Burton in third and Mount Anthony in fourth. 

Two teams competed in Jazz: Mount Mansfield outpointed Mount Anthony. Teams choose to dance in two out of the three disciplines at each competition and are judged in a number of criteria, including synchronicity and musicality.
