by Jordyn Selznick and Ainslee Archibald

Palo’s first dance show of the year started off with a bang, with our Primadonnas, Belladonnas, and dance classes directed by dance coach and teacher Kim Nordgren. The dancers did a fabulous job .

Second year Primadonna, Maddie Berkley, danced in her third dance show of her high school career.

“My favorite part about the dance show was getting to dance with my amazing team and showing our friends and family what we have been working on all semester. It’s was truly an awesome experience,” she said.

Piper Sher, a sophomore and a talented dancer in Dance 3, also danced in her third dance show. She is very proud of how the show went.

“We have been working on the dance show since week two or three of school and we have all really been looking forward to it. We have been practicing nonstop but it has been so much fun and it was worth it,” she said

Ryan Colvin, a sophomore on the Primadonna team expressed excitement after the show.

“I’ve been dancing my whole life and to participate in fourteen dances on both days of the dance show made my high school career. I had so much fun dancing with my teammates and friends. I can’t wait for the years to come,” Colvin said.

Mrs. Kim, the dance teams fearless leader thought the dance show went very well.

“I think the dance show was amazing. We had over 500 people there on Thursday and over 600 people there on Friday. There were lots of different families and dancers and it was really awesome,” she said.

She also expressed pride in the dancers who had never danced before.

“I loved seeing the dancers who had their first dance show ever and my dance teams and color guard did awesome for having their first showcase with their competition team.”

There’s more coming up for the dance teams in the future.There is a dance show in the spring that will include even more dances and more appearances from the dance classes.

“We will have a dance show at the end of the year so each dance class will have more dances and different styles of dance and different small groups.”
