Rebneris finished second in the Star 4 Girls U13 Group 2 and took gold in the Introductory Interpretive category. Gunasinghe took bronze in Star 4 Girls U13 Group 2, Beaulac took fifth in Star 4 Girls U13 Group 2 and Hilder took seventh in the Pre-Novice Women U16 Short and second in the Pre-Novice Women U16 Free.
