    The Hylton Dance Team is excited for a new start. We have a lot of new members this year, who have been working hard at practices and fundraisers this summer. If you missed try-outs in early June, there will be another opportunity to try out the second week of school.  We are especially interested in those with previous dance team and studio experience, and also gymnasts or former cheerleaders. Watch this space for more details.

    We are working hard preparing for pep rally, Homecoming game and the County Dance Team Competition. The girls are simultaneously learning two routines, and we will learn another in a few weeks. All of these routines need to be completed, cleaned, and polished for our November 19 Dance Team Competition, called Dance Champs, held at Colgan High School. If someone has never been on a dance team before, they may not know what goes into a routine! It isn't simply -dancing-. There is so much more than that! Here is an outline of the steps that need to happen before a routine can be performed. -choosing music -cutting, editing, and mixing music -choreographing the routine- we do a combination of captains choreographing and hiring professional choreographers -choreographing formations and transitions -spending hours learning the routine -going through each formation change step by step and moving people who can't get from point A to point B without interruptions -slowly going over and reteaching each 8 count of the routine -changing the parts of the routine that don't look amazing -picking out costumes/uniforms for the routine -ordering or handing out those costumes/uniforms -deciding on make-up and hair -running the routine full out OVER AND OVER AND OVER again -having auditions for the routine to ensure it looks the best it can -running the routine full out OVER AND OVER AND OVER again -having a dress rehearsal to make sure everything is just right -and finally performing/competing the routine!... Sounds exhausting, right? It is! But it is also such a sense of accomplishment when it all comes together.

    I am excited about our technique class on Thursday. I'm sure our instructor will give us the tools we need to succeed! And I am sure we will all be sore afterwards!

    The girls worked so hard at camp last weekend!  They learned several routines, bonded as a team, stretched, focused on technique, and broke a sweat! The lights on the stage were blinding, but it was a metaphor for how much they are going to SHINE this season. I'm excited to start learning new routines, and perfecting the ones we already learned. Competition will be here before we know it, and pep rally will be here even sooner. You girls stay positive, even when times get tough, because I promise you, the reward is worth the hard work!
