Throughout the past 40 years, over 799 high school girls have been involved in a dance organization unlike any other. The Cougar Charms, formerly known as the Tam O’ Shanters, are an award-winning dance team that has been around since 1975.
On October 3 Charms alumni, who dedicated many years of summer-practices and spent countless hours at every varsity football game, had a chance to return to the field for a special halftime performance.
The first Charms reunion performance kicked off with past and present military officers leading their team onto the field with the performance of officer strut. After recognizing the officers the Charms showcased a Jazz/Kick dance routine, choreographed by the Charms director, Brittany Melton.
Over 50 alumni were on the field attending with the present team sporting old-school hairstyles and make-up, and 80 past Charms attended the game to support their fellow Charms.
After the performance, the past and present Charms were invited back into the commons to reminisce on old times. There was a reception featuring old scrapbooks made by former Social Officers, and every old team composite with pictures of all 799 Charms.
