• Welcome to the HMS Dance Company!

    Congratulations! Welcome to the Dance Company 2016-17. As we head into the school year, I am excited for all the experiences we will share.  Dance Company is a wonderful way to get involved in the school and get to meet new friends. Throughout the year, you will learn about dance and performance, but more importantly, you will learn about respect, motivation, communication, work ethic and dedication. I encourage you to cherish every experience that Dance Company has to offer. Students…give your all at every moment and don’t take any of it for granted. Parents…attend as many Dance Team performances and HMS functions as possible. These are memories that will last a lifetime.  Please remember that I am here to make this experience a positive one for each and every participant and parent. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please contact me by email so we can work together to make this year great. Thank you ahead of time for your help in making this year’s team fabulous! I look forward to the memories ahead.

    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Payton-Davis
