 CHICO, Calif. - A competitive dance team is preparing to compete on a TV show.

The advanced junior competition team at North State Ballet in Chico was one of nine teams invited to film an episode of the new show, The Siwa Dance Pop Revolution.

The show was created by JoJo Siwa, who became famous on Dance Moms. The show’s goal is to create a new pop group, with Siwa serving as a mentor.

“It’s the pinnacle of what their training goes into,” North State Ballet co-owner Laurel Tennant said. “We’re looking at it as a really wonderful moment to have another piece of exposure for ourselves.”

The girls, ranging in age from 10 to 13 years old, travel out to Los Angeles Thursday. They film all day Saturday.

The team has prepared four different numbers to compete.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in this event with all my teammates,” dancer Autumn Marinella said. “It’s going to be a blast.”

“It’s a really special honor,” dancer Paige Kermen added.

The team doesn’t know many specifics about the show. It’s going to air on NBC’s Peacock streaming service later this year.

August began seasonably hot on this Sunday with fewer showers and thunderstorms than previous days, but a few did still pop over the higher terrain. Our rain chances are disappearing, but the heat and smoke will remain.
