If you have attended any SMB Wolfpack games since Sept. 14, halftime has included a dance team performance.

Ellie Hoppe, junior captain of the dance team commented on the performance. “We have really enjoyed dancing during halftime; we love performing when we aren’t being competitively judged like we usually are,” she said.

The dance team,which Hoppe has been involved in since seventh grade, has never performed at football games prior to this year. The overall response throughout the school was very positive.

We have really enjoyed dancing during halftime, we love performing when we aren’t being competitively judged like we usually are.”

— Ellie Hoppe

Senior Will Christakos, who routinely attends the Wolfpack games, said that “they did a really good job and it was cool to see someone who I have seen in the community out performing during halftime.”

Christakos added, “It was way better than just a few minutes of introducing people that goes by super slowly.” 

The dance team has performed a total of three times this year, but did not perform at the regular season finale on Oct. 17. 

The co-op dance team is a winter sport for female identifying students due to MSHSL regulations. During the fall season, however,  male identifying students can practice with the team and perform at football games.

Hoppe is optimistic about the near future of the dance team: “We are really looking forward to getting the winter season started,” she said.

The dance team officially began practice on Oct. 22.
