My Students

Each dancer on our Drill Team brings a unique, diverse, and beautiful story. In our low-income/high poverty school district, our students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Through the Drill team, we are dedicated to foster each student's ability through dancing and teamwork. This team is their safety, family, and empowerment.

"Alone, we can do so little; together we can do so much." This is truly the vision for our Drill Team.

Each student brings a different background, skill-level, and passion that creates a beautiful picture of teamwork. It is our goal to grow their potential talent and prepare them for the future. Many of our dancers do not have the resources to learn dance skills outside of the classroom, so this is their only opportunity to follow their dreams.

In order to carry out this vision for our Drill Team, we are in need of materials for practices and performances. We want to make sure the students have the full experience of a dance team. With your help, we can make that happen!

My Project

Our Drill Team is dedicated to growing students into leaders through dance. We focus on becoming team players and encourage each student to work together to make our school and world a better place!

Empowering students through dance!

Each one of our dancers is passionate and motivated. Our priority is to focus on academics, leadership, and spirit. These pom poms will provide that extra sparkle to create unity and allow the dancers to know that they are apart of something bigger than themselves. These students will learn skills that are that will last them throughout high school and beyond!
