Celebrating the Past and the Present: 40th Spring Show

As the anticipation builds for this year’s Spring Show dancers and alumni alike are gearing up for a night filled with nostalgia, celebration, and the joy of dance. With the event just around the corner, participants shared their thoughts and feelings on what makes Spring Show special.

“I’m most excited to see who all would come and how many seats would be filled and how many alumni would come,” senior Brooke Martin said.

The anticipation is high, with an expected turnout of 40-60 alumni, as word spreads through various channels including email, flyers, and social media posts.

“It’s an event for any alumni from the start of 1984 to the last current year, 2023, to come and mingle with each other and current Bailadoras,” Martin said.

For many seniors, this Spring Show holds a special place as it marks the end of their journey with the dance team.

 “The idea of it being my last Spring Show is sad, but I am so proud of the work that we’ve put in that I’m content with how I’m leaving this team,” senior Zoe Alvarado said.

However, this year had to come to an end without a familiar face in the crowd. 

 “It’s sad that [Mrs. Love] isn’t able to be there, but I am incredibly supportive of her and her family,” Alvarado said. “I will always trust that she has set us up for success.” 

What makes Spring Show special is the traditions and customs that the show is carried with. The Bailadoras have a quote “Often imitated, never duplicated.” which is what they strive for every year.

“Maintaining a tradition while changing the story behind it is so important for Spring Show,” Alvarado said. “Each moment may seem the same, but the feeling behind it is so unique to what has happened through the year.”

Reflecting on her journey from her first Spring Show to this one, one dancer shared her transformation. 

“My first Spring Show was so light and fun because I didn’t know the weight of what this team would one day mean to me,” Alvarado said. “For my last, I was so aware of the memories that I’ve shared with this team that it made every second so much more powerful.”
