With winter sports in full effect, the coquettes dance team has the opportunity to take the floor and showcase their choreographed dances during home basketball games.
“It is going so well so far,” member and junior Maddy Massa said. “Practices are super fun and productive.”
This year marks Massa’s third coquettes season as a CHS Greyhound. Massa also dances competitively outside of school and the fall dance team, Charisma.
Once week ago, on Nov. 20, the team performed for their first time this season during halftime of the men’s basketball game.
“They have to be able to perform turns, leaps, and kicks,” head coach Sarah Wolff said. “The performance has to be clean and sharp.”
In order to be prepared for performances, the team practices each week after school.
“We have already finished learning our first two dances of the season, we have five total,” Massa said.
Junior Kendall Greene is a third year member as well, dancing alongside Massa.
“I am super excited for this upcoming season and I can’t wait to show all of our hard work,” Greene said.
