AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

An Augusta dance group was one of nearly 200 teams chosen to compete for a chance to shine on a national stage!

The 75 members of the ICandy Dance Studio are heading to Birmingham, Alabama on October 28th to show case their skills for the Lifetime series Bring It.

The group competes in a style of dance called majorette, where they have to incorporate precision and power while keeping up with up-tempo beats.

Organizers said this is a huge opportunity to showcase the wide variety of talent housed right here in Augusta.

"I just think it's more exposure. More exposure for something going on great here in Augusta. To win this competition, not only would it give us more confidence, but it would change the girl's lives," said choreographer Corey Sharpton.

The ICandy coaches tell Fox 54 they're looking for as much community support as possible before heading to Alabama for the big competition.

If you would like more information on  the dance team, you can email icandydancestudio@yahoo.com or call 706-504-5816.

Donations to help the squad get to Birmingham to compete can also be sent to the group's GoFundMe page titled ICandy Dance Studio.
