The PIA Dance Team is a group of 16 girls in grades 5-8 who all love to dance! This the team’s third year together and they have grown so much since the first year.
This year, we have seven new dancers on the dance team. This year there are 16 people total. The grades go from fifth grade to eighth grade. This is Pia’s third year having a dance team. We have three eighth graders this year.
The first year the PIA dance team only had seven but now we have 16 dancers. The pia dance team got seven new dancers this year. I asked a couple dancers why they joined. Hudsyn Mason said, “I go to PIA, and I love dance, so I tried out and made it.”
The PIA dance team has performed at many places. We also perform at school games, school events, at an ice man game, competitions, and parades. We have performed at school games, school events, at an ice man game, competitions, and parades.
We also compete at dance competitions. We compete and Disney and an NDA we won in first and second for jazz and pom. Maddie Manucy said, “I love competitions because I love to perform with my team in front of judges.”
Since this is our third year together the team feel more like a sisterhood. We have an amazing bond with each other. The team is like sisters to each other, we are all ways there for each other.
The team is so happy and positive to each other. Lauren Mackevicius a new eighth grader said “All of the girls are so positive and uplifting and seeing them makes me happy”
