The 24th Annual Dance & Drill Team Showcase
They came. They danced. They rocked!
LA's BEST recently held the 24th Annual Dance & Drill Team Showcase!
More than 3,600 LA’s BEST students from 193 elementary schools gathered in the gymnasium on the campus of Cal State L.A. on May 9th and May 16th to showcase drill team and dance performances, which had been polished through hundreds of hours of hard work and dedication.
The Annual Dance & Drill Team Showcase always proves to be a popular event at LA’s BEST and this year was no exception. The showcase is an exciting time for the students to put all of their hard work to the test at this friendly competition. Small, medium and large size dance and military teams performed throughout the day in front of a standing-room-only, capacity crowd full of family, friends and supporters.
The Dance and Drill club teaches today’s dance team captains the skills to become tomorrow’s dancers, educators, and community leaders.
