November To A Degree: Dance Wave Crew

By Melissa Spencer, NCMC Dance Wave Coach

From Cheerleaders to Pom Squads to Dance Crews, you will be seeing a new group adding spirit to our NCMC campus. The Dance Wave Crew consists of 12 students from the surrounding areas, all seeking degrees at NCMC. These girls bring with them cheer, pom, dance, and gymnastic backgrounds.

The DWC will be performing at all the HOME Pirate and Lady Pirate Basketball games this season. They have made some public appearances which included the MO Days Parade and working concession during the NCMC Alumni Baseball game. Besides the home basketball games, the girls are scheduled to perform during our Holiday Lighting on November 18th and Trenton’s Downtown Christmas on December 14th.

The first DWC was formed strictly by recruitment during Spring 2019. We quickly started signing dancers and jumped into dance clinics, workshops, and camps by mid-summer. Members of the 2019-2020 Dance Wave Crew are Katie Adkison, Hamilton, MO; Skyler Adkison, Hamilton, MO;

Carly Beebe, Chillicothe, MO; Shaylea East, Hamilton, MO; Chasidy Finney, Cainsville, MO;

Kassie Frederick, Kirksville, MO; Kayley Griffin, Trenton, MO; Thelma Guerrero, Trenton, MO;

Audra Lee, Winigan, MO; Sarabeth Michael, Gallatin, MO; Essie Williamson, Gilman City, MO;

and Karley Young, Maysville, MO. Coach Melissa Spencer

We are thankful for the opportunity to get this new program started and the support we have gotten has been overwhelming. We hope that you will come out and help us support our NCMC Pirate and Lady Pirate Basketball players, as well as all our Athletes at North Central Missouri College!
