With grace and precision, Golden Girls showcased their talents at their annual Spring Show.
The Golden Girls dance team is known for their poise, leadership and pursuit of excellence at SBS. After securing their fourth state runner-up title, they moved on to crafting and perfecting their Spring Show, an annual highlight for SBS families. Alumni from the SBS original dance team, the Regal Eagles, as well as Golden Girls were represented and honored as part of our 75th Anniversary. From young children in the audience to upper schoolers cheering on their peers, the community showed up to enjoy the show.
From a humorous novelty routine to a stunning lyrical dance, the dancers showed off their versatility in this year’s Spring Show. Solos were also performed, a chance for individuals to demonstrate their unique gifts. Dance after dance, the energy never stopped.
Sharing the stage, performances by upper school vocalists, the SBS 2022-2023 cheerleaders and Memorial Dance rounded out the evening. Of course, the highly anticipated act by the Golden Guys had the entire audience laughing through each surprise. The crowd favorite “Bob & Susie” dance featuring the Golden Girls’ dads was also full of fun.
As the show wrapped up with the traditional finale, “One More Time,” the dancers reflected on their year together as they danced as a team one final time. “I am so proud to have a team that loves the Lord, loves each other, and serves other people,” said Captain Emily Bolling 23. “It has truly been a blessing and a growing experience to lead them.”
With only one senior Golden Girl on the team this year, Kate Davidson ‘22 was the dancer of honor. She described how before the final performance, seniors speak with the team during a final circle time together. “This year, I was the one to encourage my team. It was special and meaningful for me, and it was definitely my favorite part of Spring Show.” She shared, “The team was there for me all year to celebrate with me or cry with me, and they always made me feel special. Over the past 4 years, Golden Girls has made a huge impact on my life. The best part of Golden Girls is that even though I am graduating, I know that the girls and my coaches will be lifelong friends, and they will always be there if I need them.”
Golden Girls Assistant Director Jacqueline Comparin summarized, “Each girl performed way above expectations; I am still in awe of how wonderful the show was!” She added, “Being able to coach young women who put 100% into everything they do is so rewarding, and it was incredible to see their hard work pay off.”
