Highlighter Captain Caraline Otte was named an All-State Dance Team member and performed Friday, Jan. 7th at the TDEA convention (Texas Dance Educators’ Association) in Houston. The dancers all performed together after being selected to attend with their directors.

“It was so cool to dance with all the top dancers from every drill team across Texas,” said Otte. “I felt like I really challenged myself and was pushed to be the best I can be.”

Highlighter Directors Katie Hewitt and Allyson Maranitch traveled to Houston with Otte where she had the opportunity to work with famed choreographer, Afton Beadles.

The next upcoming Highlighter event will be the Gussie Nell Davis Classic 2022 Competition at Kilgore Junior College on Saturday, Feb. 12th.
