On Saturday June 25, 2016 the Blaine Bengalettes Dance Team participated in the Blaine Festival Parade. The Blaine Festival is a yearly event that the Bengalettes have been apart of for over 25 years. This year the Bengalettes performed in the parade to an 80’s theme which was choreographed by their captains Paige P., Miranda J. & Abbie N.
In order to prepare for an event like this the Blaine Dance Team had 2 practices for 2 hours each. In these practices they learned their choreography and formations, practiced the routine, built up their endurance and made sure that they were performance ready.
Winter head coach Trina Develice said “We love performing for our community and this is an event where we can perform in front of many community members and get our name out there to upcoming dancers and families.”
This year the Bengalettes had 8 seniors, 14 juniors, 5 sophomores & 5 freshmen participate in the parade. The fall team is coached by Megan Schuelein, Karissa Bolton & Brittney Fussy. The winter competitive team is coached by Trina Develice, Tricia Eckerman, Stephanie Mitchell & Kelsey Bolton.
