Five Marshalltown High School students have been selected to participate among an elite group of dancers who will perform at Wells Fargo Arena on March 4.
The students will perform at halftime of the Class 3A girls state basketball championship with other high school students from across the state.
Performing as part of the statewide group from MHS will be Kelbryn VanGundy, Cari Gassman, Anna Hernandez, Megan McHenry and Mary Drummer.
The students were selected from an audition process last August. They are coached by Miller Middle School teacher Kaitlyn Schweer. Schweer said this performance is a good way for the students to network with people from across the state. The students said they are looking forward to it.
“You get to meet new people and it’s a new experience,” McHenry said.
