RCC presents: Fantasia 2015 – New Cast, New Season, New Look!

As one veteran observer of pageantry was heard to say: “What a great way to start a new season, with a victory at a WGI Regional!”  Despite threatening storm clouds outside, it was warm and festive inside the gym at Great Oak HS, in Temecula, CA last Saturday as Fantasia opened their competitive season with beautiful Russian costumes!  With one of the largest guards in their storied history, the 20 men and 15 women entertained the crowd with intricate density studies, exciting tosses and effects – all performed to music from Stravinsky.  Don’t miss “Danse Russe” when it comes to a site near you!

NEXT STOP:  WGI Las Vegas Regional,  Saturday, February 28
