Homecoming is an important tradition at Seminole High School, but what most people overlook are the groups of talented individuals who contribute to its valuable history. One specific community with school spirit, strength, and stamina is the renowned family of Dazzlers.

The Dazzlers could be seen at this year’s homecoming game, showing off the true meaning of the pride of the tribe. During the halftime show, they performed with the SHS band in the mashup of “Anyway You Want It” and “Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’” by Journey, and “Saturday Nights are Alright for Fighting” by Elton John.

During football games, Dazzlers have two forms of routines: track and stand. Track dances are full-on performances, while stand dances are different types of moves and cheers that get the crowd hyped up.

Junior Varsity sophomore Alexia Lucas says, “Every show is an amazing experience and something to learn from. We grow and get better with each performance.”

Besides homecoming, being a Dazzler means more than just smiling enthusiastically and dancing.

Varsity junior Katerina Bentley-Crest says, “It’s a great learning experience. It’s made me so strong. In freshman year, I was scared to talk, but now I’m really outgoing. It made my personality better and taught me how to work harder, to strive for something.”

Varsity sophomore Hannah Howell says, “We worked super hard for the routines we performed. All the hours we spent in class and after school really show during the pep rally and the homecoming game. Even though sometimes it seems like it’s too difficult, at the end of the day, it’s all worth it to see how far we’ve come as a family.”

Dazzlers are passionate about putting on a stellar performance and dedicated to bring pride to Seminole High School.
