Bailadoras take New York

After an exhilarating contest season, it seemed only fitting that the Bailadoras finish the year in a setting that matched their energy: the City that Never Sleeps.

Over Spring Break, the girls traveled to New York take dance classes from a new perspective and to experience the city life.

“We were given the opportunity by our Bailadora Booster Club and various fundraising events that we have done throughout the year,”  Junior Olivia Stech said. “It’s been something that we have been able to look forward to all year.”

The Bailadoras took two different dance classes, one of which was with a world-famous Radio City Rockette.

“Both classes were really fun and different,” Senior Hanna Mullen said. “We got to practice and learn about the precision style that the Rockettes have become known for.”

“The other class was a contemporary class at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre,” Stech said. “We all really enjoyed that one because it’s a style of dance that we don’t get to do as often on drill team.”

In their spare time, the girls did some sightseeing, shopping, and even got to see a couple shows on Broadway.

“I actually enjoyed the musicals a lot more than I thought I would,” Mullen said.  “But overall, my favorite part was being in such a fun and busy city with all of my best friends.”

After such a fun trip, the Bailadoras are already looking forward to their next out-of-state trip in 2021.
