Friendswood High School Wranglerettes will host their 17th January Jubilee dance competition Saturday, Jan. 14.
High school dancers will compete in the gyms at FHS beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday.
In the all day competition, ten high schools and four studios will be competing in all genres of dance: Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Pom, and more, according to Wranglerettes sponsor Alyssa Falcone Goza.
Vendors will be set up in the cafeteria and the Wranglerettes will be selling raffle tickets, cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes, merchandise and concessions all day.
The Wranglerette officers and ensembles will perform in exhibition throughout the day and the Wranglerettes’ team jazz routine will be the final performance of the evening.
Admission is $10 per person.
Money earned from the event will benefit the FHS team.
“We use the money to fund the next year’s team to pay for costumes, contest fees, props, and various supplies through the year,” Goza said.
The Wranglerettes this year have 37 dancing members and four managers. Dance officers are made up of Juniors and Seniors with five senior officers along with two juniors. This is the largest officer squad in the Wranglerettes’ history, according to Goza.
“We invite the community to come out and support The Pride and Joy of Friendswood High School,” Goza said.
