Local dance and cheer squad adds some new faces, prepares for another season

Submitted by Teri McKinney

The T-n-T Explosion All-Star Team has been practicing since April in preparation for the 2004-05 season.

The team is getting to know each other, and the coaches are trying to figure out the best position for each girl. The team has learned several routines consisting of hip hop, cheer dance, stunting and cheers to perform this summer. The girls also recently completed a walk/ride-a-thon to raise money for new uniforms.

The T-n-T Explosion’s first fund-raiser is a car wash on Saturday, May 29, at the downtown Truckee Texaco Station from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The team will also be selling concert tickets for the Cannibal Cruise concert on July 9.

T-n-T will perform before the Friday evening concert and throughout the event on Saturday and Sunday.

“Penny Lane,” the first public performance by T-n-T, will be on June 4 and 5 at the Truckee High School auditorium.

T-n-T is looking for any groups or events that need help or entertainment. All money raised by T-n-T will go to competition fees, lodging and travel expenses for regional competitions starting in September and lasting through March.
