The Grapevine High School Fabulous Fillies Dance Team passed the whistles to the 2013-2014 dance officers at the annual Fillies banquet held April 26. Dance officers officially assumed their new duties at an induction ceremony May 7 at Grapevine High School.

Next year’s dance officers are Madyson Bauer, captain; Grayson Hefner and Savannah Schweizer, senior lieutenants; and Tristan Hicks and Leah Lambert, junior lieutenants. To be selected as a dance officer, each candidate must satisfy eligibility requirements; submit a resume and self-evaluation; complete an interview before a panel of judges; perform a solo routine; perform a captain’s routine learned that day; and present and teach their own choreography project.

The team was established in 1975 to encourage quality performances, high academic standards, fine personal qualities and loyal school spirit among its members. Nationally recognized for its performance and dance technique, the Fillies strive to earn their “fabulous” status each year through team work, performance quality and member dedication.
