FOR IMMEIDATE RELEASE
From: DX Judges Assoc.
After much consideration, it’s with a heavy heart that we inform you, the DX Judges Association has been dissolved, effective immediately.
DX invested five years of time and financial support to offer a choice to dance coaches for officials, per their request, but the association has been an uphill battle all along.
We feel the lack of DXJA representation on the state judging panel and MSHSL committees (i.e.: Rules, State Selection, Advisory) has resulted in coaches, athletic directors, or meet directors to look elsewhere in hiring judges for their events. DX feels it is difficult to show coaches that DXJA is capable and supported by the MSHSL when DX doesn’t have representation within these key positions.
DX has taken the opportunity over the last few months to partner with JAM to foster a strong partnership and collaborative communication to continue to promote dance. It was never DX's intension to compete with JAM but to partner, side-by-side, and offer quality officials for Minnesota Dance Team Meets.
DX will continue to support Dance Team in the state of Minnesota and know that Minnesota has some of the strongest and most talented teams in the nation. DXJA thanks the schools that have supported the association in our efforts and wish everyone good Luck at sections and state.
