Let’s dance: CHS Raiderettes inspire youth with dance clinic
Coffee County Central High School Raiderette dance team held a weekend dance clinic Saturday for youth pre-K to high school seniors. “We’re trying to build interesting in the team,” said coach Mandy Ballard.
The youth were split into three groups by age. Each group, lead by Raiderettes, learned a routine that was later combined for Saturday night’s half-time show.

The team regularly performs a half-time show during basketball games and have cheer-styled routines on the sidelines at football games. Students interested in trying out should contact Ballard.
