Even though the football season has ended, the Cedar Park Celebrities still have a lot of events coming up. The Spring Show, competitions, and lots of practices are on their calendars.

The Celebrities will be performing at all major girls’ and boys’ basketball games, as well as the pep rally along with their other endeavors.

Also coming up for the girls is their performance and the Winter Guard Contest on Saturday, Feb. 2, here at CPHS. Their dance competitions start in February as well, and they will be performing at competitions in San Antonio on the 15 and 16 of February and at Vandergrift High School on Feb. 23. These contests have participants from schools all over the district and even some from across the state.

“I think the girls will do really well at both competitions,” dance teacher Stacy Danielson said. “I’m confident that we will get Division 1, which means we win.”

The celebrities will be performing multiple dances, including the team novelty kick, which will include a modern dance and the kick style combination. Some of the other dances that the celebrities will be performing are their company routine, with hip hop, jazz, and contemporary dances, as well as the officer dance, which will have a jazz, contemporary theme, and will also include a novelty dance.

“The competitions are really rigorous,” social officer Leah Herrington said. “But I think that we will do really well. We just need to believe in ourselves, and not get discouraged by other teams.”

The dancers also have their annual Spring Show which will be held on April 11-13 in the PAC, and feature the Celebrities, Emeralds, the dance classes and the Cedar Park Middle School Crimson Cadets.
