The 4th Annual Fort Thomas Dance Showcase was held on January 15th. Every year dance studios around Fort Thomas come together and put on a big showcase to raise money for the Highlands Dance Team. The money that they earn at this fundraiser helps the Highlands Dance Team go to Nationals in Florida.
The showcase was held in the HHS Performing Arts Center, and it cost $5 dollars at the door. The featured performing teams were: Highlands High School Dance Team, Highlands Middle School Dance Team, Highlands Junior Varsity Dance Team, Belladance, Dance Express, Kaleidoscope Dance Company, Manyet Dance Studio, The Dance Realm, and Xavier University Dance Team. “I was very excited and nervous at the same time. It’s a great fundraiser and dress rehearsal for all the studios who are about to start competition season.” said Ryleigh Williams, seventh grader. “I really like to help the dance team out and dance with my friends even though it’s a really long 4 hours.” Says Kenna Abner, eighth grader.
