NORFOLK, NE - The dance team at Northeast Community College has kicked off its new year with six new members and one performance already under its belt.
The non-competitive squad will perform at a number of home volleyball, soccer and basketball games this year. They completed their first performance at the Northeast-Mount Marty soccer match last Tuesday, and their next performance will take place during the Northeast-Hawkeye CC volleyball game on Wednesday, October 2.
Dance team sponsor Amanda Avidano said the team has been coming together well, with the squad learning pom, jazz and hip-hop routines.
“The first performances went very well. There are a few things we need to work on, but I am pleased with their progress, leadership, and the fun they are having. We have a talented group of girls. All have been dancing in the studio since they were very little. I am looking forward to the season.”
In addition to Northeast sporting events, Avidano said the team will also participate in school activities and other special events.
Members of the Northeast dance team include Kali Egr, Bellwood; Ali Nowicki, Grand Island; Kennison Kunz, Stuart; Veronica Peck, Wisner; Amaya Dinslage, O’Neill; and Kali Hyde, Norfolk.
