Red Rhythm will be leaping into new experiences as they host the Marching Auxiliary dance contest Saturday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“MA is a dance competition where schools and studios will come to Liberty to enter their drill teams or color guard to perform and try to win with the highest score,” junior Trinity Ramirez said. “It’s Red Rhythm’s biggest fundraiser and it helps pay for fees throughout the year”.

This is Red Rhythm’s eleventh year hosting the event and over 800 dancers will be attending. A lot of work and long hours is put into making sure everything runs smoothly.

“The Red Rhythm booster association, prepares the school for the big fundraising event,” Red Rhythm director Nicole Nothe said. ”The dance team works as judges assistants, runners, concessions, and greeters. They’re there to serve dance studios and visiting teams to make sure they have a smooth running contest day”.

Captain Ellie Cline is excited to see the many different dancers throughout the day. 

“I am looking forward to seeing some of the returning teams that I’ve gotten to interact with in past years,” Cline said via text. “I am also looking forward to seeing new teams that are joining us for the first time”.
