TeenFest(ival) 2K11 was another huge hit! 

We gathered for the 7th annual event at North Carolina School of Science and Math in Durham on Saturday, March 26 and the stage stayed hot from beginning to end. Bugg Step team opened the show and warmed up the stage for “16” performing the TeenFest theme song.  The talent showcase contestants came out and kept the momentum rolling and hype.  At intermission, the audience was invited to the stage for a “Wobble” break, and as many as the stage could fit Wobble line danced to the V.I.C. go-go hit.  But the day belonged to the TeenFest 2K11 Talent Showcase Winners!
