Thursday Dec. 8 and Friday Dec. 9 the SHS dance program put on their Winter Dance showcase. The showcase was a performance for Dance 2, Dance 3, and Dance 4 students. Students start learning dances in October to prepare.

The dance program this year recently gained a new member, Ms. Doss. This is Ms. Doss’ first year at SHS.

Doss has been teaching dance for 5 years. Ms. Doss was a dancer her whole life and loves working with people and sharing her experiences.

“My first year at SHS has been very fun, [there have been] some challenges, but they have made me a stronger person. This being my first dance showcase it is stressful making sure everything runs smoothly but I have faith in the students to do what they are supposed to do” stated Ms. Doss.

Dance is a big part of these students’ lives.

“I have been dancing for 5 years but I’ve been dancing here at SHS for 3 years. My favorite memory in dance would be finishing the dances and getting to show everyone. I love dance because it helps me express myself and relieve stress” said Kayla Gibbs, junior.

The dance showcase is a huge event in the dance program.

“The dance showcase means a lot to me because it [allows] everyone, including me, to show off all our different skills” stated Dominee Theran, senior.

The dance program has grown tremendously over the past 4 years. Ms. Brindley, the main dance teacher, had around 110 students her first year. Currently they have around 200.

“Growing up dance was a hobby for me, but in high school I learned it was more than that. When I graduated I knew I wanted to share my love for dance with others. I love dance because it is a discipline, an art, and a performance art.” said Ms. Brindley, who has been teaching dance since 2010.

Ms. Brindley and Ms. Doss have made some memories with the dance program this year.

“I don’t remember which performance it was but one time we had this performance and the students KILLED IT” said Ms. Doss.

“My favorite memory consists of the excitement of show week and seeing the students working together” added Ms. Brindley.
