SPX DORADOS Dance Team
The St. Pius X Dorados Dance Team has garnered many awards, including third place in the 2015 5A NM State Competition and third place in the 2009 4A NM State Competition. At UDA summer dance camp in July 2016, the Dorados took 1st place in the High School Varsity Home Routine Competition and seven Dorados were named Universal Dance Association All Americans and were invited to perform in London on New Year's Day 2017.
While the team wins many awards, our emphasis is on performing for SPX!
The team, composed of young ladies from all grades, performs at all home varsity football, women’s basketball, and men’s basketball games. The Dorados also dance at pep rallies, the Homecoming Parade, SPX Mardi Gras Ball, and at other SPX community events. Every December, the team puts on a huge Christmas Show. This year our show will be on Monday, December 5, 2016 at 7pm in the SPX Gym. We would love to see you there!
This year the Dorados will be traveling to Orlando, Florida to compete in the National Dance Team Championships. We are working hard to raise the money to do this and would love and appreciate your support. To donate to or sponsor the Dorados’ Nationals trip, please contact Coach Gina Rightley at firstname.lastname@example.org
POM, JAZZ, LYRICAL, HIP HOP AND MORE
The coaches strive to give the dancers a well-rounded experience by exposing them to many different dance forms (pom, drill, jazz, hip-hop, modern, contemporary, lyrical, etc.) and many different choreographers.
The Dorados routinely have approximately 80% or more of our team on the SPX Honor Roll. We have our own Honor Society called Sigma Delta, that is only for students who make First or Second Honors while on the team. On the Dorados, academics come FIRST!
The Dorados believe in looking outward to the community around us rather than inward at ourselves. Every year we make about 70 blankets for the UNM Hospital Pediatric Oncology Unit. We work at many SPX community events and take part in numerous other Catholic, city, and service events. The Dorados also participate in fundraising for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
TEAM SPIRIT, FRIENDSHIP AND VALUES
The team promotes and upholds school spirit, represents the highest standards of SPX, sets an example of good behavior at all times, whether in uniform or not, in class, at games, and at all school functions, and promotes friendship and team spirit between the members of the team.
