NORTHWEST ARKANSAS-- A group of local dancers got a surprise homecoming this week. The Springdale High School cheer team just returned home to XNA Monday night from Walt Disney World for the National Dance Team Championships. The Springdale team also joined dancers from Bentonville High School's "Golden Tamers" dance team to compete against more than 300 teams Saturday and Sunday, including six others from Arkansas, for a chance to become national champs. The Springdale dancers placed third in their division. Bentonville placed sixth. The members held fundraisers to pay for their trips.
