Dance Team Steps Up in Competition

The East Hampton High School dance team has been accepted to the athletic program this year. Since 2002, the program has grown significantly from a small club to a varsity sport. Members compete four to six times a year in the Long Island Kickline Association competition at Uniondale High School and the Scholastic Dance Competition at Nassau Community College. They also perform during halftime at roughly 10 sporting events.

On Dec. 13, the team competed at Uniondale in the LIKA competition for middle schools and high schools and secured first place in a division of three schools. The judges loved the energy of the jazz routine to Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" and complimented the dancers on their skill and sportsmanship.
