More than 5,000 spectators packed Williams Arena for the 2017 Best of the Best Showcase, hosted by the University of Minnesota. The event featured 33 performances from regional high school and college dance teams and included a special performance from Goldy Gopher. The showcase not only is a place to see the best dancers under one roof, but also serves as a dress rehearsal for the college teams that will compete at the national level. The University of Minnesota Dance Team has won 16 national titles since 2003. See more photos at startribune.com/style.
