Centennial’s annual Dancing With the Staff competition is coming up on Thursday, October 25, at 7pm. This competition will feature 23 daring teachers and staff who are all competing for the title of Centennial Dance Champion. These dedicated competitors are being trained by our talented Dance Company students here at Centennial, and since the beginning of the school year, they have been working hard to blow the audience and judges away with their skillful acts.
Dancing With the Staff began ten years ago as a final project for the Dance Company students, until the fall of 2013, when it turned into a fundraising event to be performed in front of a live audience. Since then, it has been a great way for the Centennial community to come together and support their friends and teachers.
“It provides the opportunity for students and staff to switch roles as learners and leaders, and put together a show that’s fun for the whole family,” said Rebecca Clark, dance instructor at Centennial. “The support that the Centennial staff has given to the dancers is heartwarming, and the relationships that have been built through this event are priceless.”
You can come out to support your favorite teachers for only $5 per ticket. Each ticket gives you the ability to cast two votes for the staff member of your choice, and an additional 2 votes can be purchased for just $1.
Make sure to come help your favorite staff members gain the title of Centennial Dance Champion or just to enjoy a fun night full of entertaining acts. Remember, your teachers are working hard to prepare, so be sure to cheer them on!
