The dance team this year has had a wonderful season. We are sporting a new, young team with year with three-quarters of the team being underclassmen! They have been competing in pom and jazz with huge success in pom. This past weekend we took home second place in the pom category with hopes of at least matching that ranking at states this upcoming weekend.
The team practices four times a week, two of those times being at 6 a.m.! They are incredibly dedicated and working through a very tough flu season, not to mention various injuries. This team works together and pushes each other to be the best that they can be. I am very proud of them. I hope to continue to have success this season, which hopefully leads to earning a bid to New England’s again this year. I am also very proud of the fact that the team keeps growing every year. I love watching this program grow and evolve.
I have to thank CABA for their support this year as well as CHS, the Colchester community, and Bernie Cieplicki. Without them dance team would not be as successful and fun as it is!
