On Friday Dec. 2, the varsity dance team competed at the state dance team competition held at Wells Fargo Arena. The dance team competed with a pom and jazz dance, and 14 members of the 17 member team danced in each.

The competition is organized into divisions based on school size. Since Johnston is a large school, the dance team competed against other high-ranking dance teams from large schools such as Waukee, Urbandale, and Linn Mar.

The dance team is coached by Whitney McCool with the help of assistant coach Darian Huff ’15.
