Imagine the pressure of coming home and having to entertain the welcoming crowd with a stunning performance worth watching over and over again.
Homecomings are on everyone’s calendar so the show has to blow your socks off. These high school kids were more than up for it. In fact, they rocked it.
The guys and girls of Shorecrest High School in Washington delivered a heart stopping performance worthy of praise. Wearing their school colors with pride, these young dancers turned into a whirlwind of green and gold much to the crowd’s delight.
Listen to that crowd!
They form a circle with pompoms ready, then they begin punching and raising their hands in the air as the beat begins to play. In an alternating sequence, they squat, kick, and turn as the tempo increases using their pompoms to bewilder the onlookers with the building energy.
The green and gold barrage of energy
They turn towards each other seemingly creating a huddle while the boys stay in the center where a young lady is waiting.
In sync with the music, they toss her in the air as she dazzles the homecoming crowd with a high energy split. The entire school is singing along, bouncing and jumping in their seats as the adrenaline is now contagious. Here comes the dance.
Lead the way, ladies
Set to Britney Spears’s “Womanizer”, the ladies of Shorecrest work the crowd with a simple but eye catching routine. Their audience falls silent, just taking it all in.
Coming together to set up a lift, two girls stand on a net of arms and after a clap and a high five, they fall back letting their teammates catch them. It’s amazing to see how they’re so careful in executing the steps and yet maintain that high tempo of energy.
Ready when you are
Now dancing to the aptly titled “When I grow up” of The Pussycat Dolls, these kids spread out by twos on the floor, executing a tandem dance so dazzling to watch you’d press replay.
The boys set out in the middle doing cartwheels and back flips. They make it look so easy and effortless.
Take the floor gentlemen!
The school colors of forest green, navy blue, and old gold were part of the tartan of the clan Gordon of Scotland dating back to the 12th century. The school received official permission from Lord Huntley, chief of the Gordon clan, to use the colors and symbol and to be representatives of the clan.
For clan and glory. These talented dancers definitely made the clan proud.
Just listen to that crowd!
When you are given permission to wear the colors of an ancient clan and to bring their pride to the modern generation, you give it your absolute best. And the boys and girls of Shoreline high did just that. Now, about pressing that replay option…
