As the season changes from winter to spring, the Coppell High School Lariettes’ competition season transitions into the Lariette Spring Show. The event was established the previous year for more opportunities to bring for the Lariettes.

“The spring show is one last time for us to perform together as a team and to get the community to come out and watch it,”  senior Lariette line member Mira Jiang. “ I am grateful for the chance to perform with this team for the last time before I head off to college.”

The Lariette Spring Show is Friday at 7 p.m. in the CHS Auditorium. Tickets are$12 for general admission and $15 for reserved seating. This year’s theme is movies; the Lariettes will perform dances inspired from popular movies such as Trolls by Mike Mitchell

“I think some of the routines are really fun to dance this year,” Jiang said. “They’re all based on movies and we just want people to have a good time and this is an experience.”

Before each dance performance, short clips of the movie will be featured to transition into the next dance.

Variety of hip-hop dances will be performed such as an opener dance, pom routines, small squad dances and final dance as Lariettes do their signature kick together. All senior officers will have a solo performance, as senior Larriete captain Elaina Hair will perform Back to the Future by Robert Zemeckis.

“ I really like our pom routine team, it’s a whole team one and it’s based off of Marvel and the Avengers,” Jiang said. “I also honestly like our squad dance this year. It’s hip-hop that’s based on  Trolls.”

The team has been practicing dances featured at the show since March, but has reworked some competition dances for the show. 

“We usually have before school practices and work on the dances,” Jiang said. “After school we do a run through by getting used to the quick changes in costume.”

The event has hopes to bring the Coppell community together to witness talents from the lariettes for future generations.

“It’s a chance for everyone to come together and enjoy watching dances,” Jiang said. “There are little girls nowadays who eventually want to become a part of this team, so it’s good to have dances that let them see what we’re doing.”
