Rally Planned Thursday for Cedar Heights Dance Team

Students on the Cedar Heights Junior High School dance team got a major workout as they practiced their hip hop routine Tuesday. You can see a video of the team’s dance tomorrow at kitsapsun.com.

The pressure is on, as the team prepares to compete in the National Dance Team Championships Saturday and Sunday in Orlando, Florida. This is the fifth year Cedar Heights will be represented at the prestigious championship that draws around 400 elite dance teams from around the country.

The Cedar Heights team will give a preview of its performance at a 7 p.m. rally today (Thursday) at the junior high.

Joining Cedar Heights in Orlando will be John Sedgwick Junior High School’s dance team in its second year at the competition. The two Kitsap schools are among six from Washington — and the only junior highs in the state — heading to nationals.

Participating on the team take all the dedication of a varsity sport, as teams practice three or four nights a week and often on weekends.

Cedar Heights and Sedgwick’s performances at the national competition will be available for viewing at www.varsity.com Saturday evening. Both teams have a chance to make the finals on Sunday. The event will be broadcast on ESPN later this year.
