Edmonds, WA (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
The award winning Edmonds-Woodway High School Drill and Pom Team hosts its fourth annual competition Saturday January 17th from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the EWHS gym. This year's competition will be one of the largest in Western Washington with teams traveling from Bellingham to Vancouver to participate.
Participants will compete in several categories including drill, pom, hip-hop, kick, dance, flag and prop. Please come enjoy the precise movements of drill, the fluidity of pom, the edgy beat of hip-hop dancers, the grace of jazz, the showiness of kick and the excitement of flag and prop teams. All teams perform to a specific set of standards per category and must complete each segment within a set period of time. Professional judges score each team. The teams compete for trophies and their scores compile with those earned from other local and regional competitions in an effort to qualify for the State Competition held each spring at Yakima's Sun Dome.
"Our school presents a high profile competition each year, but the 2009 performance is a record setter. We have 24 teams registered and a total of 36 performances! We are at absolute maximum capacity and are looking forward to showcasing the hard work of these young men and women," stated Coach Deb Johnson. "This is the premier event for our girls. They begin working for this in July. Team members and parents plan for months to make this a thrilling event to remember."
Concessions will be served all day. This year the team is featuring individual professional carts serving Jamba Juice, hot dogs and espresso and gourmet coffee. An assortment of delicious hot and cold snack and lunch items will be served throughout the day from vendors such as Trader Joes, Pizza Hut, Seattle Bagel, Top Foods and Cash and Carry.
Commemorative t-shirts and sweatshirts, flowers and customized "shout outs" will be sold. Shout outs and flowers will be delivered throughout the day to dance boys and girls with a special message from family and friends.
