Silver Stars shine in final stage effort

May 29, 2014



The Bowie Silver Stars presented “I Am” their spring show production on April 24 – 26.

The Silver Stars were under direction of Jennifer Dawson and Jennifer Bennett.

The theme of the spring show was “I Am” honoring women before who showed courageous actions.

“The theme is celebrating women in history and the women of the future feeling the need to empower young women” Silver Stars Director Jennifer Dawson said.

It was a good theme because it showed us as young women that we have the power to become what we want and it could empower other women to become the things they want to be

The directors decide the theme of the show however the dancers were able to tell a story form 2 simple words “I Am”.

“It was a good theme because it showed us as young women that we have the power to become what we want and it could empower other women to become the things they want to be,” Sophomore Silver Star Mary Moore said.

In preparation of the show the Silver Stars have had endless hours of practice to ensure a flawless show.

“Well first off we started practicing for the spring show in December which helps us not have to do as much practicing during the time of show because we have already drilled those dances into our heads. It was hard because we were on a time crunch for learning and remembering the new dances,” Junior Silver Star Olivia Wigley said.

For the seniors it was the last time performing in their uniform, and it was also the baby Silver Stars first performance.

“It is so emotional because it is the seniors last time performing, spring show means so much as a Silver Star because it’s our last performance of the year, and performing finale in our uniforms is such a good feeling because it is so upbeat and so exhilarating” Moore said.

The theme “I Am” is represented through words that all the Silver Stars come up with in which they describe themselves or what they strive to be later on in life.

Throughout the opening dance a bottle containing those five words is passed around. The bottle travels from the back to the front until it gets to Silver Star Captain Madi Hacking who then opens the scroll with those five words and watches everyone transform into those five words.

“At the end of the dance our captain Madi opens the bottle reads the message and watches us as we all become the things we want to be,” Moore said.

The Silver Stars overall were very happy about their performances and thought the show was a big success considering thousands of people went to see them.

“The show went extremely well. In dance its kind of a hit or miss, you either know you did really good or you didn’t do good enough,” Wigley said.
