The Westside High school Inertia Dance Company competed in the HISD Exclusive MA Dance Competition at Waltrip High School this past weekend, February 17th. Teams in the HISD district competed against each other in eight different categories including; Dance Teams, Officers, Large Ensembles, Auxilliary Teams, Solos, Duets, Trios and Small Ensembles. Every team’s goal was to win the first place trophy.  Westside’s team performed very strongly and they came out on top in a big way! Captain Kiara Guyton won first place for her solo.  The Inertia and Inertia 2 teams both won Super Sweepstakes.  The Inertia boys won First place in their Small Ensemble, and the Inertia Girls Ensemble won first runner-up.

“The moment that I found out we won first place is something that I will never forget” Hue Le commented on the success of the team.  Preparing for a competition like this takes a great deal of time and dedication and sometimes means sacrificing the ability to participate in other non-school events as well as giving up time just hanging out with friends. However, several of the team members stated that it is worth all the hard work and it is really amazing to see how far the team has come in such a short time when you look back to the beginning of the school year.

Waltrip High School was full of dancers on Saturday morning, many of whom arrived at the school by 6:30 am. Westside’s Inertia team had a long day ahead of them with competition times beginning as early as 7:30 am and running nonstop all throughout the day until 7:15 pm. Westside’s Inertia team entered ten different dance routines and three solos. The Award ceremony started at 9:00 pm with the event wrapping up at 10 pm. “It was a long and very tiring day,” said Euriah McQueen. Although the Westside Inertia Team did great overall and everyone was happy to have performed so well.

The Inertia Dance team will be competing next weekend on March 24th at George Ranch High School. However, our very own Pride dance team will be there competing. Come out and support the Westside wolves and see what kind of trophy they bring home. Admission to get in is $10 at the door, don’t forget!
