On Friday February 24th the EFHS dance team and the EFHS cheerleaders came together in the EFHS gym to perform at the last home boys’ basketball game. While both the cheerleaders and dance team perform separately, they came together to perform for the first time at the last boys’ home basketball game.
This performance was the first time ever that the two teams had come together. The reason they decided to do this was that they wanted to do something fun and special for the last home game. The two coaches decided together what music they would use, but they each did their own performance to that music.
The kind of dance that they did together was a hip- hop dance. Both teams wished they had more time to practice, because practice makes perfect. Everyone was very happy at the way it turned out, because it was something new. Dance teacher Taryn Colby said, “Both teams did a great job that night.” When asked how the two teams decided what songs to dance to she said, “I picked out the song and asked the cheer coach if it was ok.”Since this worked out so well it's likely that the cheerleaders and dancers will come and meet up again. This will be something that the crowd will look forward to.
