Nautilus Middle School Sharkettes
The Sharkettes

Last month, Nautilus Middle School’s Sharkettes placed first in the jazz category at the Florida Cheer and Dance Competition. Although, the competition was mostly targeted to cheerleaders, both cheer and dance teams gave it their all.


The Sharkettes, being a beginning level team, had intermediate to advanced choreography. Sharkettes were choreographed by Nautilus’ Dance Director, Ana Bolt and yours truly. The 14 girls were excited as if they were competing for “So You Think You Can Dance.” Excitedly, Ms. Ana Bolt helped the girls place their makeup and warm-up for their first competition. Surprisingly, the girls looked at ease in the crowded gymnasium in Coral Springs.


After running the piece a few times, the Sharkettes took their position on center stage. At this point, the choreographers were just as anxious as the team. The team breezed through their dance with big smiles. Their parents watched in anticipation. They completed their dance without fail and walked off confidently. The sound guy loved their competition song so much, he copied it. Don’t tell…


During the prize presentation, all teams would rush to the emcee to grab their prize. For sure, the emcee had a few close calls and almost fell to the ground. The Sharkettes’ chins dropped when they received first place. They jumped up and down, danced, screamed, yelled and hugged each other with happiness. Their parents were so gracious to the instructors in giving their girls a positive experience. In unison, all the girls said, “Yes we want to do it again!”

    Being a member of the Sharkettes myself, I cannot say how proud I am of the other girls and myself. I am so happy we won! But most of all I must owe it all to Ms. Bolt and Ms. Maritza. Without them, we wouldnt have won. They were literally the masterminds behind the modern, fresh, and awesome choreography. Thanks a million!
