At the National Dance Team Chamionships at Orlando, Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort on February 4-5, 2012 the Carlsbad High School Lancer Dancers varsity dance team took first place in the Varsity Hip Hop competition to win their 9th National title.
“After the team danced at finals, I was thrilled! They came out with such intensity and left it all on the dance floor!” said Laura. Team captain, Camille Posard, states, “We were fighting hard to defend our Championship Title and the competition was extremely tough. All those hours of practice, rehearsals, and sacrifices culminated minutes before the Finals. During our pep-talk we all had tears in our eyes and a roaring fire lit inside.”
Congrats to all the girls. Follow the jump for all the details. [click to continue…]

Carlsbad High School’s National Champion Lancer Dancers are back in school and kicking off their busy training schedule that will see them defend their title at Nationals, but that’s not all they’ve been doing lately. No, they’ve also been giving back to the community.
The Lancer Dancers are committed to giving back to the Carlsbad and the surrounding communities and have held multiple food drives and volunteered hundreds of community service hours as a team. They have given their time to so many worthy causes, but have found a real passion for sharing their love of dance and giving back to children, especially those in need.
For more details on the work the girls have done over the summer (as well as what they plan to do during the coming year) follow the jump. [click to continue…]
The week of August 1, 2011 Carlsbad’s national dance competition award winning Lancer Dancers will be sharing some of their deep dance skills with young dancers grades K-7 during Jr. Lancer Dancer Summer Camp.
Team Co-Captain, Camille Posard shares her theory on success, “Last year we were the Cinderella Story winning the National Championship with 8 rookies on the team and 5 freshmen, but it was hard work and determination not experience that made it possible. We will be sharing what we learned with the dancers at camp this summer”. . . . The Lancer Dancers are excited to be able to share their dance skills, choreography, and teamwork with other young dancers during this week of camp. Their goal for the camp is to inspire others with their love of dance, but more importantly, how teamwork, dedication, and hard work can take you just about anywhere that you set your sights on! Lancer Dancer, Katie Park, describes how camp is about more than dance, “Young dancers will not only learn dances, but leadership qualities and discipline that help you succeed in other aspects of life.”
All the five-day camp requires the will to dance and a $100 donation to the Lancer Dancers. For more information click here and/or follow the jump. [click to continue…]
Just as a warning: Do not get into an argument with any of the Carlsbad High students shown in this photo. You’ll likely lose. They are trained debaters and according to some recent performances they’re pretty good at it, too.
Winter Debate Tournament, held January 28 and 29 at Helix Charter High School, saw 16 schools competing in four different debate categories. Carlsbad’s team walked away with a 2nd place overall, including first places in the parli and public forum categories. . . La Costa Canyon hosted a Winter Individual Event tournament on February 5, where 11 schools competed in 12 different events. Winning top honors – 1st place sweepstakes – was Carlsbad’s powerhouse team, who took first place in six of the twelve events. . . “I am impressed with our rankings, and proud of our team’s accomplishments,” says Coach Minnia Curtis. “This team started with a handful of members just four years ago. We are now over 100 strong and true contenders!”
Carlsbad will host the State Qualification Tournament March 4 and 5, 2011. Coach Curtis is also looking for volunteers to judge future debates and/or help support the team. For more information follow the jump.

Carlsbad High School’s Lancer Dancers brought home a Hip Hop National Championship and a bronze medal in Jazz from The National Dance Team Championships held February 6-7, 2011 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. But it wasn’t all easy. No, no, no. Let’s just say there were issues.
The Lancer Dancer’s early morning flight on Thursday was cancelled, and the team was told they wouldn’t be able to get another flight for their large group until just hours before the competition would start. Everyone scrambled and the team ended up having to change airlines and carpool up to Orange County in order to get a flight late on Thursday. Due to so many flight cancelations, the flights that could get out were so full, the team’s carry on bags with their costumes in them had to be checked in. Captain Lani Yamanaka said,” The storm was a nightmare! We didn’t know if we would make it in time for the competition or if our costumes would get lost. I was thinking, we might be competing in what we had on at the airport.”
But they made it. Congrats to the Lancer Dancers. Follow the jump for all the details on their spectacular trip. . .

Students from Carlsbad High School TV are at San Diego’s election headquarters Golden Hall tonight working on their special Election Show and getting a first hand look at the democratic process in action. According to a story on the Voice of San Diego CHSTV had the largest presence in the room.
Its production and reporting team was some 40 strong, and most of them fanned out across the swarming election night headquarters, maneuvering with cameras and microphones through the colorful masses that gathered to watch returns. . . What media organization can afford to send 40 people to a single event, you ask? . . . That would be the ninth- through 12th-grade class of Doug Green, a Carlsbad High School teacher who runs Carlsbad High School TV, an elective class for students interested in working toward careers in broadcast news production.
Nice work if you can get it.
