The AV Dance Team’s efforts paid off as they brought energy to the Donversity rally through their dancing.

As students anticipated the festivities of Donversity, the AV Dance Team was hard at work. From consistent practices to having fun dancing together, the Dance Team put in the effort to perform their best at the Donversity rally.

Leading Up to the Rally

“We’ve been having practices twice a week [with] morning practices. We’re also using some of the dances from the basketball season, so we know our dances really well,” said Dance Team captain Aanya Bhandari (‘25)

The Dance Team already learned some of the routines for the performance at basketball games, but the Dance Team still felt anxious about the Donversity rally. 

“I hoped that we perform without forgetting the new transitions and that the crowd would be hyped, so the vibes are good. I was a bit nervous about what to expect, but I enjoyed performing and was glad I am a part of this team,” said Juliana Yang (‘24).

Of course, preparing for this big event has not been smooth the whole way. There were some struggles that the team had to overcome. Despite it all, the team stayed strong and decided that they were going to enjoy it no matter what happened.

Performing in Front of the Entire School

“We had some people leave the team, unfortunately. We also had a lot of people being sick, so we had to work through people being absent by adjusting the formations and dances for this performance. Still, we pulled through, and I think we did a great job,” said Bhandari.

Their hard work paid off. The audience reacted well to the team’s performance. It was clear that the team had worked hard for the dance to go smoothly. 

“The performance seemed well executed. It was apparent that the girls had a lot of practice going into this Donversity rally. Overall, it was a really clean job and fun to watch,” said Gracie Zheng (‘24).

For many AV Dance Team members, the Donversity rally is one of their favorite rallies with the many exciting performances that different groups on campus have prepared. The AV Dance Team does not fall short and is one that many students enjoy watching. 

“There’s just so many performances and so many different people showcasing their culture which makes it more exciting and fun since everyone has someone or something to relate to and feel included in,” said Yang. “I’m just really happy that Dance Team had a place in this rally, and I hope Dance Team continues to bring energy to our school.”
