The Guardians hosted a Dance Clinic on October 21 in the dance gym from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Dance Clinic was designed to educate grades kindergarten through 10 on dance skills, dance routines, and what it’s like to be a Guardian. The Guardians host a fall and spring clinic every year.

“Last year’s went pretty well, actually,” sophomore Aaliyah Taylor said. “There were a lot of people, about 30 or 40. We taught them one of our pep rally routines. It was really fun and they all enjoyed it.”

The Dance Clinic costs $35 per person, and includes a shirt and a snack. The clinic is an effective way of making profits for the dance team.

“It is a fundraiser, so we do it to make money,” sophomore Giuliana La Perla said. “But we just love teaching children how to dance and how to have fun and inspire them. We just want them to have a fun time and be with people they look up to.”

The clinic is a way for students and dancers to reach out and be part of the community, inspire those to dance, and let those attending know that the Guardians are welcoming all who want to be part of the team.

“When we go to football games we have a lot of little girls that sit with us,” Taylor said. “They copy our movements and they kind of want to be like us. We have it so that they know we are an opening team and that we are welcoming to others. We just want them to know they can be a Guardian one day.”
