Dozens of local dancers are celebrating a successful competition and invitation to a national competition this summer.

Nearly 50 dancers from Dance Depot in Ahwatukee Foothills received invitations to the Spotlight National Dance Cup in Seaside, Ore. this June.

"It's the elite of the elite," said Georgia Foote, Dance Depot owner.

The girls, ages 8 to 17, qualified at a regional tournament in Phoenix in January.
