A Fort Saskatchewan dancer stole the stage at K-Days.
Haley Huckabone, an 11-year-old hip-hop dancer put on a performance for the ages at the K-Days Talent Search. Her two-minute routine earned her first place in the junior category and $2,000 cash.
"I performed my solo at Sherwood Park Mall and they picked six people from everyone who auditioned at Sherwood Park to move on to the semi-finals at K-Days. In the junior category there was 18 people. Only four of the 18 made it to the finals," said Huckabone.
As the category winner, she'll also be performing next year as a returning act. In 2017, all three K-Days Talent Search winners were singers.
Huckabone has been performing for eight years and currently dances out of Eye Candy Studios in St. Albert.
She said she'll be spending her winnings on her dance trip to Vegas this December and the rest of the money will be spent on training and new dance shoes.
K-Days went from July 20-29 in Edmonton.
