Many of the girls on the Wellington High School dance team started dancing at a very young age. That’s one of the reasons why they decided to give back to the community and offer two dance clinics in July for elementary children ages 5 to 11 who have an interest in dancing.
The registration fee includes snacks, beverages and a T-shirt. Children should dress in exercise or dance attire, which includes either dance shoes or sneakers.
Children can attend one clinic or both, in the Wellington High School dance room on Wednesday, July 16 and/or Wednesday, July 30 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
To reserve your child’s spot, mail a check to WHS Dance Team, c/o Wellington High School, 2101 Greenview Shores Blvd, Wellington, FL 33414. Be sure to include the child’s name along with a payment of $30 per clinic, or $20 per clinic for district employees.
Sixteen members of the WHS dance team, coached by choreographer Brittany Tobasco, were selected to perform at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 2. Only a few teams from around the country are asked to participate. At the state competition in Miami in February, the team was given a Superior rating and won awards for group performances in jazz and pom, in addition to some members winning first place for a duet and second place for soloist.
For more information about the July clinics, or to reserve a spot, call Tobasco at (561) 800-7625 or e-mail BrittanyTobasco@gmail.com.
