Now that the basketball season has arrived, Etowah students and parents also have something to look forward to at halftime. The Dancing Eagles, Etowah’s dance team, choreograph their own dances and will be performing once their first dance is ready, which is planned to be Jan. 6.  

“The group was able to learn the whole first dance in one practice, which is very impressive,” Brittany Chandler, head of Dancing Eagles, said after their first practice together. 

The Dancing Eagles was founded last year as a senior project. This year, Chandler, literature teacher, has decided to take it into her own hands to continue this team. She does this with the help of Etowah’s Dancing Eagles veterans and juniors, Kristin Denmark, Rebecca Zimny, and Brooklyn Digirolamo. The girls helped Chandler decide who else would join the team during tryouts. 

“I think some of the new girls that we added this year will bring much more advanced technique into play so that we can add more difficulty to the routines,” Denmark said. 

The junior girls are currently working on costume and t-shirt designs. There is a lot to prepare for by the time of the Dancing Eagles’ first performance, but Chandler and the rest of the girls know they can pull it off.
