Shine dance team performs at halftime of a Pella Christian football game. The team includes thirteen members, nine of which are on the state team. State competition is held November 30 and December 1 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, with Shine competing on the 30th. They will perform three routines: jazz, pom, and lyrical. “Performing at state is really rewarding because of how hard we work to prepare, so it’s great to see all of our work in practice pay off,” said captain Chloee Reimer.
