Let’s start by taking a look at homecoming, the Mount Pleasant Varsity Dance Team performed a fast hard hitting routine at the homecoming assembly, and danced their way through the parade. The homecoming routine music was a custom mix consisting of “Kiss Kiss” by Chris Brown, “Without Me” by Eminem, and “Stronger” by Kanye West. At the parade the team danced through to the various songs. After homecoming, the team went on to a competition for November, where they won fifth place.

After their competition the team went on to start their regular season. During the season the team performed many pieces. They performed a pom routine to a pitbull mashup, and followed the theme of the game which was construction outAfter that the team held their winter clinic with the littles who were also invited to perform with them. At the clinic the kids learned many things including a halftime routine and some basic dance moves. Then it was Christmas time! The team performed a christmas dance to “Run Run Rudolph” by Kelly Clarkson. After that they went on to perform an amazing hip hop halftime! After hip hop the team learned and performed a snazzy jazz routine to “Tainted Love” by Soft Shell.
