This past Saturday, the Pueblo West High School Dance Team took second place in their first dance competition this school year.
The Pueblo West High dancers competed in the Universal Dance Association competition at Cherry Creek High School in Denver. Out of the 17 school that attended the competition, the Pueblo West Dance Team danced their way all the way to second place. This accomplishment took a tremendous amount of hard work from the dance team.
Even though West did not come out on top, Alexis Adams, a Freshman dancer, says, “I had a ton of fun and it was a great experience for our team as a whole.”
Many of these girls have been dancing for several years. The dancing continues outside of school. Most of the dancers also are apart of the Sarah Shaw Dance Studio. Adams has been dancing for about 12 years now. The work these girls have put in showed at this competition.
The dance team is able to bring girls together with the same strong passion for dance. Adams states, “I’ve created friendships with girls who I’d otherwise never talk to because we are in different grades and/or we don’t have classes together. There are a lot of girls that I’ve grown close to that I’ve never actually talked to before.”
This competition was a huge success for the Pueblo West High School Dance Team. This group of dancers shows great promise for future years.
