Despite the University of Kansas’ first Final Four game in four years being scheduled on the same night as Spring Show, the dance team’s fundraiser was still a success.

This year’s spring show was held Friday, March 30 in the auditorium, with the emcees being seniors Addie Fahrlander, Logan Peifer, Katie Beemer, Charlie King-Hagen and Connor Henderson. Many parents and friends of the dance members attended, as well as cheerleaders.

Spring Show consisted of a variety of dances that the team has been practicing all year. Some dances were performed at halftime at basketball games, and others that were seen in the show included individual segments as well as junior varsity dances. To throw something funny into the show, each of the girls got to choose a boy for the “Boy Dance.”  The boys learned a simple dance that the team choreographed, and dance alongside their girl.

“It was interesting trying to get everything organized,” Peifer said. “Charlie, one of the five, had baseball most of the time, so on the night of the show we had to get him up to schedule all of the changes. I think it turned out great from what I’ve heard. Everything’s been positive.”

Spring show is the last time the Golden Girls danced for the year.

“I love the feeling after Spring Show because you just feel so accomplished. We all work so hard and I feel like we leave it all on the stage,” Maggie Meyer, junior, said.

A lot of hard work and preparation went in to giving the audience a great experience.

“We went to school from 6-10 pm every night, had early morning practices at 6:30 am three days a week, plus a Saturday rehearsal,” Meyer said.

Even with a large amount of Kansas fans anticipating the Jayhawks’ Final Four battle that night, many students still came to support their fellow classmates.
