This year, Breanne Moore and Anna Chapman saw the Club Fair as an opportunity to make history by beginning the very first dance club at Parry McCluer, the Bluettes. 

The Bluettes consists of students from 8-12 that enjoy performing. They appear at pep rallies and home basketball games during halftime where they present dances that they have been working on. 

At the very first pep rally, they made their mark! They performed a Hip-Hop routine entitled “No Money,” and in this dance they incorporated many leaps and tricks to get the crowd engaged. 

After speaking to some of the members, I got to find out why they enjoy this team so much. Anna Chapman, Co-President, states, “I had been wanting a dance team at Parry McCluer for a long time. Then, when Brea came, I had someone to do it with.” Brea agrees with this statement and added, “The dance team has made a lot of progress since the beginning of the year and I’m so glad there’s dance at PMHS now. I’m so proud of every member.”

One of the most popular opinions of the members is that being a member of the Bluettes allows you to meet new people and learn new things about dance and performing. In meetings, they learn dances from every style including Modern, Jazz, and Contemporary. They also make Tik Toks, do improv, and have dance battles. Look out for upcoming events because you may see an appearance from the Parry McCluer High School’s Bluettes!
