Master teacher and choreographer Michele Blecher of the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team from Royal Palm Beach High School held virtual auditions for the 2020-21 Wildcat Dancers Dance Team on April 30 and May 1, since the live audition was canceled due to the COVID-19 virus. Sixteen top dancers were chosen as members of the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team next year based on their advanced dance technique and advanced showmanship.

Since all public schools are closed to activities throughout the summer, Blecher along with the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team are holding a virtual Dancers’ Boot Camp, where the dancers learn, review and master new dance techniques and choreography. Blecher and the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team are up for the challenge of this new world of mastering dance routines virtually. They are also looking forward to the day when they can meet in person at Royal Palm Beach High School’s dance studio. In a world of uncertainty, Blecher and the team know that this will be a positive and rewarding dance season.
