CARLSBAD — Carlsbad High School’s varsity dance team, the Lancer Dancers, will be teaching dance classes after school on Wednesdays from Sept. 24 through Dec. 3. Classes are tailored for beginners, intermediate and advanced dancers ages 5 through 14 for a suggested donation of $125 per child. The lessons include two live performances, a T-shirt and photo.
Participating “Junior Lancer Dancers” will learn new dance routines and perform on stage at the Lancer Dancer Showcase in December, as well as the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Event in downtown Carlsbad. Registration for the after school classes can be completed online at HYPERLINK “http://www.LancerDancers.com”LancerDancers.com.
The donations will help fund the Lancer Dancers’ trip to Orlando, Florida to compete in the 2015 Universal Dance Association’s National Championships. The team will also be competing at the United Spirit Association’s National Championships in 2015 to defend their national title in the Hip-Hop category.
In nine of the last 14 years, the Lancer Dancers have won national titles and the team placed second in the hip-hop category by very narrow margins. The support the squad receives from the Carlsbad community is truly instrumental in empowering the squad to consistently shine at such an elite level of competition.
