Four members of the Washington high school dance team were selected to perform with the 2019 All-Iowa Honor Dance Team.
Auditions for the all-Iowa dance team were held in Ames in the fall, and girls from across the state were chosen based on dancing ability, leadership qualities and other factors. Four Demons, seniors Maddie Janecek and Maddie Ross, junior Savannah Hall and sophomore Sophie Kleese, stood out enough to be chosen.
After some practicing at Grand View University for the two days prior, the team performed a number of routines at the girls’ state basketball tournament a couple weeks ago. Ross was a part of a patriotic pregame performance that went both Friday and Saturday of the tournament, while Hall, Janecek and Kleese were a part of the halftime performance. Janacek was in the kick line and Hall and Kleese were a part of the pom squads.
