Silver Stars look forward to upcoming Extravaganza

Josh Duden, news editor

In recent weeks the Silver Stars Dance team, the Cheer team and the Silver studs have been preparing for the Silver Star Extravaganza on Saturday, March 31 at 6 p.m. The extravaganza is the last of the performances for the 2011-2012 season for the dance and cheer teams and will feature multiple team dances, several solos and duets and, of course, the yearly performance by the Silver Studs.

Junior dance team member Hailee Windsor said she is looking forward to the performance this weekend.

“I am so excited for our performance this weekend,” Windsor said. “I am excited to have everyone see our dances and, of course, to see the guys dance, too.”

The variety show is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for the team and this year they hope to be able to buy new costumes for next season. Junior dance team member Kylie Andres hopes the turnout will be helpful in the team ventures next season.

“It is so important because it starts us out for everything,” Andres said. “It pays for our costumes, choreography and camps all next year, so it is probably one of our most important fundraisers for the team, overall.”

Among the dancer’s various performances, the silver stud’s performance is one prepared for with non-members, specifically males, of the dance team. Each is asked by a dance team member to be a part of the dance and, in the end, they perform together at the show.

Being the last show of the year, the team plans to perform all their group numbers, and various duets and solos too. Windsor says people should come because the surprises in store.

“People should come see us because we showcase dances they have never seen before,” Windsor said. “We always cheer for them, and we would love to come support us too.”

The Extravaganza will be in the school auxiliary gym tomorrow night,  Saturday, March 31. Tickets are $7 at the door.
