MADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/12/14) — The Hopkins County Central High School High Voltage Dance team will be hosting a dance clinic from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Hopkins County Central gymnasium.

Pre-registration will end Friday, Sept. 5 and regular registration will be held that Saturday of the dance clinic from 7:30 to 8 a.m.

“It is primarily for children ages preschool to middle school,” said President of the High Voltage Dance Team booster club Vickie Grimes. “We are trying to reach out to the community, make them more aware of our dance team, as well as the health benefits of dancing.”

Pre-registration cost is $30 and includes a T-shirt at the door the day of the clinic. Those who register that day will receive a shirt later and will cost $35.

Grimes said most of the financial support comes from private donations and the funds they raise through the booster club.

“Our team is a competitive team, we compete at regional, state and national levels,” said Grimes. “We also do our best to help raise school spirit by dancing at football and basketball games, pep rallies and most of our team attends other sporting events to support the school.”

Grimes said the team is the reigning KDCO state champion and placed third in hip hop at National Dance Alliance in Orlando, Fla.

“Our team was also recognized for its accomplishments by the Hopkins County School Board and were given accommodations in front of the Kentucky State Senate and House of Representatives,” said Grimes.

Grimes said that dance is not a recognized school sport; however, the team works really hard and dedicates time for the intense practices and competitions.

“Dance is not a recognized school sport,” said Grimes. “Although our girls have intense practices three times a week and will practice 4 to 6 hour days before a competition… they are a dedicated, hard-working team, that has lead them to many accolades and awards.”

The team wants to share their love for dance with the younger people of the community, and with the dance clinic, they hope to encourage others to dance for their middle schools and high schools.

“These girls and one boy are school and community leaders as well as high schoolers,” said Grimes. “They work hard and achieve phenomenal results.”
