The Lancer Dancers hosted the annual Lancer Dancer Pancake Breakfast last Saturday in the main gym from 8-12 p.m. The company, Chris Cakes, supplied all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, a toppings bar and Tang.
“The pancake breakfast is to help the Varsity Lancer Dancers raise money for nationals and it also goes towards new costumes and uniforms that we may purchase during the year,” Varsity Dancer Isa Tamburini said.
SME’s Varsity and Junior Varsity Drill Team performed their team routine and a new hip hop routine titled “Bang It to the Curb”. Vocapella (a local a Capella group), senior Charlie Jensen, and seniors Chloe Kerwin and Oscar Motsinger also performed.
“We [performed] an original song that Oscar wrote called “Home”, as well as “Young Folks”, “Sea of Love”, “Love Club”, “Island Song”, “Owen”, “Dream a Little Dream of Me”, and “You Really Got a Hold on Me”, Kerwin said.
In addition to the pancake buffet and performances, this year the Dancers added a photo booth.
“People liked the photo booth because it was a good way to pass the time in between performances,” Varsity Dancer Aurora Nelson said.
As a whole, the Dancers had their biggest turnout ever, hosting 750 people and raising over $3000.
“This year was the best turn out we have ever had. We actually ran out of pancake batter so someone had to run to the store to get more,” Senior and Varsity Lancer Dancer Lauren Blackburn said.
