Corrina Hofer and Camryn Sparrevohn of the Los Al Dance Program are this year’s Dance Team Captains. Dancing for most of their lives, these girls have taken on the greatest responsibility of the Dance Team. Hofer explains, “Communicating plans to the team, making decisions about dances and being prepared is most important”. Sparrevohn added, “It’s really hard to plan things because people are really busy”. Just being in advanced takes a lot of dedication, time and energy. Being in the highest level of the dance program means it’s important to set the example, especially as the captains. Hofer continued, “If you’re really tired, it’s hard, I’m right there in the front so I have to try harder.” As seniors in their fourth and final year in the dance program, I asked if they had one last goal for the year. “Getting into college and having fun,” they both said. It’s evident if you watch these two that they both are blessed with talent. Ranked at such a high level of dance, they are also opened to dancing professionally in their future. If you are a dancer and wish to improve, here’s what they had to say; “Don’t ever give up,” said Hofer, “Take your technique classes,” Sparrevohn said laughingly.
