Mount Si High varsity dancers shine at competitions

Mount Si High’s varsity dance team capped off its stellar season with a second-place finish in the kick category and a fourth-place finish in the military category at the 4A state championships on March 23 at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

They made team history by earning the school’s first superior score (the highest possible rank) with a 272.90 in kick and bringing home the school’s first ever dance/drill state trophy. Out of the 163 routines performed at state, Mount Si finished in the top 10.

Also in March, the team attended its first national competition at the Long Beach Convention Center in California. The team notched third- and fourth-place finishes in military and kick, respectively, at West Coast Elite Nationals.

At the KingCo District Championships, the girls placed second in both 4A kick and military, and senior CJ Tse and junior lieutenant Gracie Stokes placed first and second in the individual drill downs.

For next season, the team is holding tryouts from 5-7 p.m. May 6 and 7 with final evaluations set for 5-7 p.m. May 9. The team requires no previous dance experience — dancers will teach newcomers everything they need to know.

All rehearsals will be held at the MSHS Main Campus Gym. Interested dancers should attend all of the listed dates and times. More information can be found at mountsidanceteam.weebly.com.
