Lakerettes UDA Camp!

For the past four days, the JV and Varsity dance teams came to school for a home dance team camp. Instructors from Universal Dance Association came to try to replicate the overnight camp we usually go to, but weren’t able to, because of the Coronavirus. The dancers wore masks and used floor tape to stay socially distant while they learned four routines in different styles. The dancers were evaluated on their routines on the fourth and final day of camp.

It was tricky to make this happen during a pandemic, but we felt that it was important for the growth of our program and the mental and physical health of our dancers. The dancers were so happy to be back at school dancing, so they were very willing to follow all of our safety protocols, but it was a challenge to remember all of our new guidelines. All doors and stairways became one-way only, personal items were kept at a minimum, and corrections were harder to give because none of us could be near each other. However, all of our dancers rose to the occasion and did the best they could. As one of our seniors, Maria Leitao said, "It was my last dance camp, but it will certainly be my most memorable one!’
