Ld Kick Off Season

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.National Champions, Carlsbad Lancer Dancers’ kick off year giving back to community

Captain, Camille Posard and the Lancer Dancers recently became sponsors of a local chapter of Everybody Dance Now! (EDN). Everybody Dance Now is a youth-run nonprofit organization that encourages free dance instruction to young people throughout the country. Their mission is to not only inspire young people through dance, but to empower them as agents of social change. The team really believes in what EDN promotes and have jumped into making a difference.

Over the summer the team donated their time to a group of military families at Camp Pendleton, keeping the children entertained and teaching dance while their parents attended a food distribution run by Hand UP Food Pantry. Camille, noted “It was a toss- up as to who had more fun, the kids or us! We had a great time sharing our love of dance to kids who might not be able to afford dance lessons”. The team felt very proud to have been asked to help local marines and their families and will be teaching more free classes. If any organization that serves underprivileged children is interested in having the Lancer Dancers teach class or lead an event please contact us at www.lancerdancers.com
