We caught up with our VIP models Ali and Kate after they wrapped up their whirlwind season of conventions and competitions this summer! Check out what they had to say about their experience as a Line Up VIP and their busy year full of practices, traveling, modeling, and performances!
Two notable accolades among Ali's impressive list of accomplishments this year include: Runner-up Mini Female Best Dancer at The Dance Awards Orlando (how cool is that!?) and a member of the Beat Squad at DancerPalooza in San Diego! Here's what she had to say about her season as a Line Up VIP:
"I am so thankful to have been chosen as a Line Up VIP for the 2017/18 season. I can’t thank all the staff at The Line Up who worked with me throughout the year enough. I am forever grateful for the friendships I made with other Line Up models & am lucky to have had Kate Happe as my fellow Line Up VIP. It was easy to represent a company whose values fit well with mine & products were made of the best quality. I am lucky to be have been able to work with the staff & models during photo shoots & video shoots, they treated us like family & couldn’t have been more happy to represent The Line Up."
Check out a few photos and videos from her season, below!
This past season Kate consistently placed in the top 6 teen solo at every convention she attended. The video below was a 4th place teen solo at Nuvo Dance Convention, where she is sporting her namesake costume - the Kate Unitard! Here's what she had to say about her season as a Line Up VIP:
“I was so honored to have been chosen as one of this year’s Line Up VIP’s during the 2017-2018 dance season, alongside the incredible Ali Ogle. My year as a VIP was just incredible. Not only did I get to represent the amazing dancewear, but I was able to watch my solo costume go from design concept (Mollie Sylvestre designed) to dancing my heart out in the final product. Go check out the Kate Unitard!!! I thoroughly enjoyed every photo shoot with my Line Up family. These are wonderful people that care a lot about me and the products they produce.”
