About the CHS Sweethearts
The Sweetheart Dance Team of Centennial High School in was established in the fall of 2003. There were 36 charter members, 2 managers, and 1 Director. Our quality is top notch and our members are true leaders! As a Sweetheart, one learns not only how to be a fabulous dancer and performer, but also how to problem solve, work together, strive for perfection, be a lady, and make life-long friends. It is one of the truest forms of team sports!
The Sweethearts perform at all varsity football game half-times, girls and boys basketball games, pep rallies, and community and school events. The Sweethearts also compete in both regional and national spring contests and have won numerous awards for their outstanding performances. As a result, the Sweethearts have even performed with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders at a Cowboys game at Texas Stadium. The Sweethearts have also traveled to San Antonio and New York to participate in dance competitions and clinics.
At the end of each year the Sweethearts present a Spring Show in which they showcase a wide variety of routines. These include football season routines, contest season routines, and new routines such as Guy/Girl, Parents, Squads, Classes, and New Members.
In addition to performance obligations, the Sweethearts have participated in community service projects throughout the school year, such as collecting donations for local charities, welcoming home the troops with the USO, volunteering at the Victoria Nursing Home, and volunteering with the Frisco Family Services.
It is an exciting time for the Sweetheart Dance Team as we are heading into our sixteenth year. There are 33 line members and 2 managers on the 2018-2019 team.
