Wingspan: How long have you been involved in dance, and what got you started?

Hancock: “I danced when I was younger and I was on a company team for a few years and now I’m on drill team. We live really close to The Dance Movement, so I kind of just took it up in elementary school and stuck with it.”

Wingspan: How often do you practice for drill team?

Hancock: “We have practice Monday through Wednesday in the morning and Thursday after school. During contest and spring season we also have practice on Friday mornings.”

Wingspan: What types of dance do you practice and which are your favorite?

Hancock: “Drill Team specializes in jazz, pom, military, and then kick. We do a little bit of hip-hop at pep-rallies. And then at spring shows we do more of contemporary and modern, which is my personal favorite.”

Wingspan: Why do you love to dance?

Hancock: “It’s just fun to perform and I just love all of the Red Rhythm girls. They’re fun to be around and it’s just a fun time.”
