Junior and next years’ Grenadier Drill Team Co-Commander Melanie Coronado talks about how she feels about dancing. By performing dances for the student body on Friday May 4th and Saturday May 5th in the Churchill theater, Melanie and the Grenadier Drill Team celebrate the art of dance.
Coronado says preparing for Dance Celebration was well worth the hours of practice.
“Preparing for Dance Celebration was really fun,” Coronado said. “It took a lot of work and dedication but in the end it was worth the long hours because I got to see how pumped we made the crowd when we did cool skills and things they didn’t expect us to. I love to dance and they love to watch us dance. It’s a win win.”
Junior Sidney Garza, a member of the Grenadier Drill Team, also says she loves to dance for a crowd.
“It makes me feel really good,” Garza said. “I love that I get to show all my friends how much dance really means to me by putting on a show for them.”
More specifically, Junior Destiny Frias, also a member of the Grenadier Drill Team, shares her love of dancing for her friends.
“I love to Dance in front of my friends,” Frias said. “It makes me feel powerful and confident. I get to show the people closest to me just how hard I’ve worked to get there and how much it paid off and I love it.”
“I’m so excited to see how many people come to see us dance,” Coronado said. “It always great to visually see just how many people support our team and what we do. It’s so humbling and I can’t wait to show everyone what we’re bringing to the stage this celebration.”
