Drill teamers prepare for Spring Special

With the school year coming to an end, varsity and JV drill team members are preparing for their biggest show of the year.

The theme for this year’s Spring Special will be “Hit the Lights” and will feature a total of 23 dances from the varsity and JV drill teams as well as varsity cheerleaders, drum line, eight senior boys and a few of the girls’ parents. From hip-hop and jazz to modern dance, “Hit the Lights” will showcase a variety of styles.

“There is something for everyone. There is almost every type of dance and music, and it’s really sentimental for seniors,” drill team sponsor Christin LaMourie said.

The show costs about $1,000 to produce. The money comes from ticket sales and fundraisers. The girls have been working on the Spring Special since early February to show their school, family and friends what drill team is really about.

“We are doing this to showcase the drill team. Basketball has their games and football has their games that everyone always goes to,” junior Olivia Rezac said. “It’s our time to shine and show off what we can really do.”

Spring Special will be held today and tomorrow in the auditorium at 7 p.m. Tickets will be $7 for adults and $5 for students.
