The first year was a challenge because only a few of us had ever seen a dance line before. We were very green. We took 17th place out of 17 teams the first year.

It's quite an experience for the girls to be a part of something this big and the dancers will carry home some life lessons as well as an experience they will never forget.

We're trying to get the routine to look the best it can and trying to get all the little things that are off back on track. We are working on energy a lot and getting the moves as tight as possible.

We still have the same problems we had 30 years ago.

Before the routines were not as aerobic. Now we need to train more.

I didn't dance, but I twirled. I also did choreography as a kid. I was so excited to be part of the dance line.
