The Wolf Pack Dance Team puts on a short performance at the dance camp they hosted Saturday.

One hundred and forty children descended upon the high school Saturday morning with one common goal- to learn a dance routine.

The children ranged in age, from three year olds to 13 year olds, and the Green River High School gymnasium and auxiliary gymnasium were filled with children learning a dance routine from the Wolf Pack Dance Team.

This is the third year the dance team has put on this dance camp and it has grown. The first year about 80 children attended and in the second year the group saw a slight decrease with 70 attending. But this year's number is double what they thought they would get Melissa Skinner dance-team volunteer said.

A lot of the dance-team parents have connections with the schools, which helped bring that number up, Sabrina Finstad, dance mom said.

"We have so many moms who work in the elementary schools,'' Finstad said.

During the three-hour program, the dance team members show the 140 children how a routine, which is danced to the Bruno Mars song "24K Magic." The routine was created by Wolf Pack members Megan Cleary, Kinley Cochran and Katherine Skinner. Once they got the routine down, they taught it to the rest of the 15-member dance team. The dance team then taught it to the children. 

Not only did the children learn the routine, but they will have a chance to perform it in front of a crowd during halftime and the GRHS Lady Wolves home game Saturday at 6 p.m. 

"That's going to be awesome," Skinner said.

Skinner said the camp is a great way for children to learn some new dance techniques and stretches. It was also an opportunity for those in attendance to watch the Wolf Pack Dance Team perform a couple of routines and a half of one they are working on for state. All of the money raised through the dance camp will go toward the purchase of the team's costumes and to help pay for a choreographer, who will them come up with the state routines the Wolf Pack will perform.
