Dance Team instructor and coordinator Sherian Cain, of Sherian’s School of Dance, remarked about the upcoming season, “We are very excited going into our 4th year of the Blue Diamonds. We have some new faces and some familiar faces, and we’re ready to rock the house with Lion Pride!”
Freshman and returning member Sandrae Jimmerson said, “Blue Diamond dance team tryouts were a great experience to learn a new dance and help with your own self-confidence. The stress and hard work of learning new choreography in three days and having to try out with people you don’t know and have never met, I believe, is worth it. I can’t wait to start my second year on the team; I know that we will work hard as a team to help each and every dancer become better.”
New member Heaven Ramos said, “I’m so excited to be a part of the FHS Blue Diamonds. I have been dancing for a long time, and to do what I love for the school is amazing. I can’t wait to spend my junior year dancing with so many fabulous girls!”
The Mighty Band From Lion Land will have approximately 300 members for the upcoming season.
