Learning to dance at Wolfpack camp
January 30, 2019
More than 70 children were learning dance moves to a song during the Green River Wolfpack Dance Team's dance camp.
On Saturday two Green River High School gyms were filled with children from preschool through eighth-grade students who were all learning dance moves to the song "It's Party Time" from "Hotel Transylvania 3."
Assistant dance coach Christine Peterson said the older children in grades fifth through eighth were learning a separate dance from the preschool through fourth-grade dancers.
Wolfpack dancers Rayne Welch and Katherine Skinner choreographed the routine for the younger children to learn and perform, while Emily Skinner choreographed the routine for the older children.
Peterson said the dance camp is a way for the Wolfpack Dance Team to raise money to pay for costumes, a choreographer and travel expenses to and from the state competition.
"This is our biggest fundraiser of the year," Peterson said.
Parent Cindy Kranz said her daughter has attended the dance camp for the past three years with her friend. Kranz said her daughter has also attended the dance team's cheerleading camp.
Kranz' daughter is 7 years old and seems to enjoy learning the dances. She said her daughter is just too young to be in a regular dance class and on the go all of the time.
This is a way for her daughter to experience the fun of dancing without having to be on a dance team all year.
During the camp, the participants learned how to stretch, a dance routine and new games. Those who attended the dance camp will perform in front of a home crowd during the JV boys game on Saturday at 11:30 a.m.
