If you ask the girls at Driven 2 Dance about why they compete with the Glenview studio, you’ll receive a pretty straight-forward answer: it’s a family. 

“I enjoy how close our team has gotten and how strong we are together. It’s not about just one person,” said Lauren Akey, a rising eighth-grader at Sacred Heart School in Winnetka. “Everyone is equal. Our team is very strong. It’s not just a bunch of soloists.”
