Since February, Alhambra’s All-Male, Drill and Orchesis dance teams have been competing in various competitions. This year, the teams have attended Streetdance USA and Glendale Games at Glendale High, along with other competitions at Sonora, Glen A. Wilson, West Torrance and Fountain Valley.
During this season, Alhambra’s All-Male Dance Team has been undefeated in the Large All Male Hip-Hop category.
“I love my team and competing! As a four-year member, it’s such a relief that we’re doing so well. I’m glad I’m ending my All-Male career with this year’s team and the dance family,” Captain Raymond Tran said.
Meanwhile, the Drill Team has placed in several of their competitions in the Kick and Pom category.
“Drill started off really well but slowly decreased in placing, but we hope to get back on top again,” Drill Captain Marilyn Htingbai said.
In the Co-Ed category, AHS placed first at Sonora, second at both Wilson and Glendale Games, third at Streetdance USA and fourth at West Torrance.
The dance teams’ last competition, Miss Dance Drill Team USA, is on April 5 at UC Irvine, but they may sign up for additional competitions.
“I honestly think my team started off somewhat unprepared with the proper mindset for competition season, but we definitely narrowed down our focus and worked a lot harder towards improving as a whole. Regardless of how we do for the remainder of the season, I am definitely proud of this exceptional team,” Orchesis Captain Nicky Ng said.
