The Dance Team girls pose for a picture as they wait for their team pictures to be taken.

Dance team had its tryouts on September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of last week.
Cristina Leos, a senior, Sammy Pfannenstiel, a junior, Taylor Depenbusch, sophomore, Keiarra Gonzales, sophomore, Sydney Pots, sophomore, Eileen Veatch, sophomore, and Brooke Leiker, a freshman.
Freshman Brooke Leiker joined the dance team this year as the team’s only new member.
“I am looking forward to doing the dances with everyone,” Leiker said.
Dance team will meet three times a week at 6 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday and at 7 p.m. on Thursdays. They are currently working on a halftime routine for football season.
“Our first performance will be at the first home football game, September 18,” coach Sarah Malott said.
While dance team did have many performances throughout last school year, one seems to be a favorite among the girls.
“Little Party from the first game last year,” sophomore Keiarra Gonzales said, while sophomore Eileen Veatch agreed, saying, “My favorite dance was Little Party.”
While this school year may have bumps in the road, the dance team looks forward to it.
“I am looking forward to hopefully preforming at all,” Veatch said.
While the team consists of six members, Malott said that new members could be added during the year.
“We are always happy to have new people join the team,” Malott said. “If you are interested or have any questions about joining, feel free to talk to me or one of the dancers.”
