The Golden Dance & Cheer Squad ended the Homecoming halftime show with a superb performance Friday night. Every dancer on the team was coordinated and they were all wearing Golden Dance & Cheer t-shirts.

The Golden Dance and Cheer Squad is a new inclusive program this year where students get to perform non-competitively, while still having fun and making new friends. This year’s coaches are Stephanie Krolo, Meghan Wilcoxen and Quinn Shereck.

“[The goal is] bringing everyone together, and having that opportunity for students to build leadership skills and friendships,” Stephanie Krolo said. 

Their performance was in the middle of the football field and included jumps, spins, cartwheels and splits. The team worked together to put on an engaging performance for the audience while also having a great time on the field.

“I just hope they’re having fun. I’m super excited. I think that as long as my athletes are excited and having fun, then I feel the same exact way,” Krolo said. 

If you happened to miss the performance, do not worry. There are many more opportunities in the near future  to come and watch. As of right now, it is said they will perform at one of the basketball games in the winter. 

All the girls were smiling ear to ear and dancing their hearts out. Most, if not all, the spectators applauded the performance and many even said they are excited for the next performance.

Lucia Macari is a junior at LHS and is entering her first year on the Tom-Tom staff. Her friends and family would describe her as a hard worker and they would definitely call her a perfectionist. She is usually pretty busy as she is a part of the Varsity Dance Team, Golden Cheer/Dance Team, a member of Mu Alpha Theta and working at her family’s restaurant, Digs on Canal. She takes pride in her academics and hopes to attend the University of Michigan for Political Science in the future. When she has freetime, Lucia can be found listening to her favorite music – she is a huge Swiftie – or watching her favorite movies, which are “La La Land,” “Little Women” and “Top Gun: Maverick.”

Leila Rexhepi, 17, is a third-year Tom-Tom member and is ready to wrap up her senior year. With big goals of playing in the LPGA, she has been working tirelessly this summer to make her dream come true. While many people think she works at Cog Hill & Country Club, she is actually holding it together while doing infuriating putting drills. All this work has paid off though with winning a tournament with a score of 79 and earning Junior PGA Player of the Year. Although she may be aiming for the lowest scores on the golf course, she is not aiming for low goals and grades. She has earned student of the month, won IHSA sectionals for Photo Storytelling, first place for her ceramics piece in the LHS winter exhibit and secured qualifying scores for her AP classes. Currently, she is taking two dual-credit classes this year and is exploring her interests with Sports & Entertainment Marketing, Ceramics and ASL II.
