Forty-two girls danced their way in KHS Tuesday, March 7 for the first day of dance team tryouts. On the first night, candidates learned a dance and technique skills. The coaches did a technique evaluation of turns leaps and jumps following night, Wednesday, March 8. Candidates performed the dance they learned in front of a panel of judges that the candidates have never met on Thursday, March 9. Both the dance score and the technique score are used to determine the placement of the dancers. Results will be announced Friday, March 10.

“It’s really hard as a coach to take someone’s goal and dream and stomp on it,” Katie Bekebrede, varsity coach, said. “But, my favorite part of tryouts is [the] people who have really improved from the previous year showing what they improved on. it is really neat to see the growth year to year.”
