The Chino Hills High School Dance Team has proven once again that they are accomplished Huskies by winning big at their competition held on January 13th at Aliso Niguel High School. The girls, led by Senior Captains Brooke Wendel and Rheana Tumang as well as Junior Captains Claire Ku and Hayley Dyer, placed 1st in 6 divisions: Small Lyrical, Medium Lyrical, Large Jazz, Large Lyrical, Medium Contemporary, and Medium Hip-Hop. The All-Male dance team, led by Captains Zachary Benitez and Ryan Jose, won 1st place in the Small Hip Hop division. Since the All Male Dance Team was established last year, this was a key win because it helped further establish their reputation as a talented, hardworking group. For the girls, this was also an important win because it demonstrated that they are able to maintain their highly respected position among the other dance teams in the nation after placing 1st in Nationals last year. This win was definitely well deserved; Dance Team practices hard to perfect their skills and push themselves to be the best they can possibly be. Both groups look to their fellow teammates for inspiration as well as motivation. They build off each other’s strengths and constantly encourage one another to give every performance their all. The team’s hard-work has not gone unnoticed; In addition to being well-respected by other teams in the nation, the Chino Hills High School Dance Team has been previously recognized by big names such as Ellen DeGeneres and America’s Got Talent. Keep making Chino Hills High School proud, Huskies!
