 “The dance turned out really well. It was a great night for Wildcats to come together and represent our school.”

What are some differences from last year and some changes you want to implicate for next year?

 “All of the [changes] we saw were positive. [For example], this year’s halftime show had thrones instead of cars, which I would really like to use again next year. I would also like to see another successful halftime show.
