CF dance teams take State by storm

Four of the CFHS dance teams went to State last Friday, all incredibly confident and determined to keep up their tradition of excellence and victory at the State competition. They did not disappoint, and they kept up their victory streak at State.

The competition Pom team performed at 9 a.m. in Wells Fargo Arena. The girls took third in the class 13 Pom competition and received a division one rating.

The Co-Ed dance team performed at 10:50 a.m. in Wells Fargo Arena, competing in the large school co-ed competition. They got fourth place and received a division one superior rating, which means they are of a high dancing caliber.

Junior Co-Ed member Logan Ryan said, “Everyone [on the team] was so supportive. At State, it was like we really became a family. I wouldn’t change the experience for anything in the world. It’s indescribable.”

The All-Male dance team performed at 4 p.m. on Friday. The men placed first with a division one rating for the fourth consecutive year.

Junior All-Male member Seth Van Roosendaal said, “I was proud of our team. I had full confidence that we were going to do a good job, and we did.”

Competition Hip Hop performed at 5:30 p.m. The girls danced their hearts out in their Rosie the Riveter costumes and placed fourth in the class eight hip hop competition, also receiving a division one rating. At the awards, it was announced that the judges stated that “it was the toughest and best hip hop class that they have seen at any competition.”

In addition to all of the separate victories of each team, CFHS won the Sportsmanship Award for the third consecutive year. All of the teams at State vote on who should receive this award for great sportsmanship. The award may especially be attributed to the work of the All-Male dance team, who wrote hundreds of poems that wished people luck and handed them out to all of the other dance teams at State.

All of the dance teams competed incredibly well and received well deserved awards for their skills. They finished their competitive season with a bang and will continue to dance throughout the basketball season at games before the dance season is over.
