For the past few days, members of the Lassen High School Grizzliettes received training in dance technique and learned routines in a variety of genres, including jazz, military, hip hop and kick. The annual camp, hosted by the United Spirit Association, was held at William Jessup University in Rocklin.
The Drill Team earned the highest honor, Superior, for their performance of “Tick Tick Boom.” In this dance, captains Renee Delgado and Sofia Bennett were challenged to integrate level changes, signature moves, and other challenging choreography.
The team was also awarded the “Most Improved” plaque.
