Oconomowoc High School seniors on the varsity poms team have decided to include some of the special education students in this years prom partner dance.

“This year I was overwhelmed with joy when the girls requested permission to dance with the special education students,” said varsity poms coach Laura Kinart.

The partner dance originated back in 1997 when the poms team danced with boys from the soccer team for a winter dance or TWIRP assembly.  It has been a tradition since then but this year the girls have decided to put a new spin on it.

The new project was an idea from the seniors on the varsity poms team as they wanted to share their passion for dance with other students.

They have been spearheading the entire event/performance for this years prom assembly.

“I wanted to include the special education students to give them an opportunity to be a part of something fun and for them to participate in an event they have never done before,” said second year varsity poms captain, Kesari Patel.

The dance team seniors had choreographed both routines a few months ago and in the past few weeks they have taught them to both groups of partners.

The partners have been practicing after school while the special education students have been learning and practicing their routine during school hours or during pride period.

“I have really enjoyed working with these students because they have such enthusiasm to dance and perform,” said Patel.

This year the partners will be dancing to a special compilation and the special education students will be dancing to “Happy” by Pharell.

With the help of staff the practicing has been going smoothly and the performance should be just as great.

With hopes that the event becomes a new tradition the girls hope that everyone enjoys the performance.
