Dawson Diamond Dancers prepare for spring show
The Glenda Dawson High School Dance Department is hosting its fifth annual Diamond Dazzle at 7 p.m. May 4 and 5 in the Dawson High School auditorium in Pearland.
Also known as the Diamond Spring Show, the school's Diamond Dancers, the Dawson Catalyst Color Guard and other dancers from Dawson programs will perform.
This year's show is called "Rock the Boat" and will be a lighthearted, cruise-ship-themed event.
The Dawson Dance Department is led by director Leslie Grant and assistant director Tiffany Geach. The 29 Diamond Dancers will perform a wide range of dances.
"Most people don't know we compete in the spring, so our annual show is a great time to let everyone know what we're about and what we really shine at -- performing," Grant said via a press release.
"The dances are much more high-energy and more complex than past years, and we've been able to push ourselves and do more difficult skills," said senior and Diamond Captain Kacie Stanfield via a press release.
The Diamond Spring Show is also a time for seniors to get together and reflect on their time together.
"My favorite part about Spring Show is that everybody can come; all of our friends can watch us and see how hard we've been working all year and see all of our first-place dances," said senior and social committee President Mercedes McGinnis via a release.
Tickets are $10 for general seating and $12 for premium seating and may be purchased at the door or online at www.totalgatesolutions.com/SportingEventTicketCalendar.aspx?schoolId=188. Refreshments and flowers will also be sold at the Diamond Dazzle, with all proceeds going to the drill team.
The Dawson High School auditorium is at 2050 Cullen Blvd. in Pearland.
