Lassies Don’t Just Dance, They Soar

Woodrow Wilson High School’s Lassie Dance team has officially started their 2023-2024 season. The team is responsible for entertainment through the art of dance at sporting events throughout the school year. Julie Doyle, coach and teacher of WWHS has been guiding the team for the past three years. When not on the field the girls can be found practicing their craft and learning new routines at least twice a week within the shelter of a local dance school. Currently, the team is hosting a fundraiser known as “Little Miss Lassie” which allows children of the community to dance along with their respected lassie team member. The money gained from this is used to fund costumes and other expenses.

In addition to the help and guidance of Coach Doyle the assistant coaches of the group include Mr. Travis Doyle and Miss Brenda Duesing. This year’s team captain is senior, Kylie Norris who has been a faithful member of the team since her freshman year.  In addition to Kylie, the team consists of 18 other dancers.

The team is set to perform their next halftime routine Sep. 22. To follow their journey and events you can add the group’s account on Instagram at “wwhsdanceteam.”
