Davis’ D’ettes have been anticipating their highly critical competition coming up next week. The region drill team competition is the deciding meet for which schools will move on to the semi state and then state finals. Our school’s hard-working drill team has been putting in hours upon hours of work to prepare for upcoming region which takes place next Wednesday, January 23.

The D’ettes have prepared 4 dance routines to preform at region: military, kick, dance (and their optional routine that doesn’t qualify for state.) For the most part, the group will preform all together in these routines. A few girls will preform solos at region, but dancer Makayla Littleford says that solos are optional for all dancers.

One misconception people seem to have about competitive high school dance teams is that they learn new dances for every competition. In actuality, drill teams typically have the same dances for competitions, but according to team member Makayla,

“We compete the same routines but they change depending on what looks good and what doesn’t.”

So we can see that the D’ettes are constantly innovating and bettering themselves and their routines. By the time they get to competitions like region and state, their routines are meticulously clean and edited. These dancers have practices for hours before, during, and after school, and with that much work it’s no wonder their routines become so clean.

Because the girls have been working extremely hard this year, they are hoping for a place in the top three at region. Placing at region would guarantee a spot in semi state and finals. If they don’t get high enough scores, however, competition season will be over. We will soon find out the result of region and wish the D’ettes good luck!
