Reaching skyward as they move in unison to the tune of "Dig A Little Deeper" from Disney's "Princess & The Frog," members of the Bayshore High School Honeybears rehearse in the school's auditorium last week.
The end game for these and some 300 dancers representing 11 middle and high schools across the county was Saturday's "Yes We Can DANCE" showcase at State College of Florida.
And it was a wild success -- 27 dance numbers repeated in two performances with a sold-out, standing-room-only crowd for the last show.
And a shout out is necessary!
Here's to our passionate and hard-working young performers. They are just one small part of a growing focus in the creative and performance arts that continues to flourish at schools across Manatee County. With the continued support of the community, many of these teenagers will grow up to become the standard-bearers for Manatee's evolving cultural legacy.
