(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Silver Stars dance team is starting to prepare for national competition in a big way.

They are getting motivated by writing down inspirational words to help them work hard for nationals, scheduled for February.  Senior and officer of Silver Stars Marisa Skertich said, “I’m getting excited for the team and I really think we can do amazing things year if we keep up the hard work.”

Many of the dancers are running after school to help keep up their stamina for their dances.  They will start officially conditioning next week so that they can prepare their bodies for national season.

The team this year wants to place in finals, come more together as a team, impress the school with their abilities, and to have as much fun as possible while doing it.

Sophomore and newest member of Silver Stars Sophia Chivas stated, “I’m really glad to be a part of this team and I love how motivated they are, and I am so happy to say that they have made me feel like a part of the team already.”
