MOUNT ZION, Ill. (WCIA) — A group in Our Town is lighting up the stage.
The Mount Zion Swingsations are known for being some of the best. They’ve been performing close to a half-century. This year they had more than 60.
Director Connie Mulligan says it grows each year. Students learn to sing and dance as well as compete.
Over the years they’ve won several competitions and awards. Mulligan says they’re learning more than just how to perform. At their last competition this year, they got fourth runner up at Heart of America. It’s a national competition held in Orlando.
The group still has the same choreographer since it started 42 years ago.
