Malvern High School dance team invited to perform at Sugar Bowl

MALVERN, Ark. - WorldStrides OnStage programs has invited the dance team from Malvern High School to perform in the upcoming Sugar Bowl.

They will join the most elite dance, cheer and drill teams from across the country in the halftime show finale of this major college bowl game. An invitation to perform at the Sugar Bowl is an honor reserved only for the most talented student performers from across the nation.

Under the direction of Candice Gilbert, the Malvern High School dance team will travel to New Orleans where they will rehearse with nationally acclaimed choreographers. In their free time, they will take in the sights of New Orleans. Candice Gilbert has been teaching for 4 years and will be personally leading the Malvern High School group to New Orleans. This is a brand new team this year with only two returning seniors. Also this is the first year Candice Gilbert has traveled with WorldStrides. In an effort to raise funds for this trip, the team will be holding car washes and bake sales. In addition, they will have a crafts booth and will be showing a classic movie at The Ritz Theatre in Malvern.  To learn how you can help the Malvern High School dance team’s fundraising efforts, contact Candice Gilbert at cgilbert@malvernleopards.org or (501) 332-6905.
