On March 5, Centennial High School Dance Team hosted the 45th annual Metropolitan Dance Festival. It’s traditional for Centennial Dance to host the Metropolitan Festival every year.

Fifteen high school dance teams attend the Metropolitan Dance Festival:  Barlow, Wilsonville, Sherwood, Tualatin, Oregon City, Lincoln, Century, Silverton, Hermiston, Lakeridge, Gresham, Westview, Cleveland, Lake Oswego and Centennial.

Each dance team selected their own theme, objects to use and color combinations for  balloons and props.  The Centennial HiC’s theme was, “This is just the beginning.”

Senior Christina Le, co-captain said, “I enjoyed performing with my team and had so much fun that day. Everyone that came was so supportive and I could tell they were also having fun as well.”
