Upbeat songs, beautiful costumes and perfectly timed choreographed routines made up Monday night’s dynamic Golden Girls Spring Show. From the opening dance to the final number, the audience was blown away by the talent and hard work of our upper school dancers.
“Seeing the show come together so perfectly just makes the whole experience with my favorite people worthwhile and all the work put in pays off,” said Captain Claire Bolling ’19. “Being a senior and being able to see my last dance come to a close as captain made the night really special.”
A memorable fan-favorite moment was the tap dance to Dolly Parton’s song “9 to 5,” preceded by a video put together by the Golden Girls that followed a day in the life of a Golden Girl. Their typical “9 to 5” day begins at 6 a.m. and lasts until 11 p.m. with co-curriculars, homework and mealtime falling somewhere in between.
“My favorite part of the show this year was our tap number,” said Lieutenant Caroline Carlyle ’20. “The audience loved our performance, so it was really rewarding to see choreography that Claire and I worked on together being loved by so many!”
The combined efforts behind the scenes from the Golden Girls and Coach Madelyn Wilson were evident as each number was performed seamlessly. Transitions between performances included special narration from team members describing each act. Even more special were outstanding presentations from our newly appointed varsity cheerleaders and a few upper school vocalists.
According to Carlyle, “We work for months to bring a great spring show to life. And, I mean months!” She continued reflecting on the show, “We work so hard, and I am unbelievably proud of everyone. I am sad that it is over because this year’s show was spectacular.”
Ending with dedications and heartfelt thank yous, the Golden Girls’ love for dance and desire to honor God shown through at their 2019 spring show.
