Dance Studio of Maine in Gorham was awarded the Class Act Award for Sportsmanship at a recent Turn it Up competition featuring studios from Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.  “We won a lot of awards at this competition, but the best award of all in our eyes is the second year in a row of winning the Class Act Award for Sportsmanship. It is so nice to see that the respect for others from the students and staff at DSOM, and graciousness, win or lose, does not go unnoticed. I could not be more proud,” said Trish Moulton, owner/director, Dance Studio of Maine. Courtesy photo
