The Eagle Valley High School Dance Team will host a dance clinic Thursday June 5 for girls in grades Ok-5 and the Eagle Valley football team will host a sports clinic Friday June 6 for boys in grades K-5.

Members of the Eagle Valley High School Dance Team will teach the elementary students a specific dance, along with dance techniques and dance moves. The girls sleepover includes dinner and a T-shirt.

“It’s a great way for us to serve as good role models for the younger girls and it’s a fun “girls night out’,” said dance-team member Brenda Torres.

The girls’ dance clinic held at the AmericInn in Eagle costs $45 for girls who are sleeping over and $30 for those who are not.

“It was so much fun last year and the high school girls were so nice. It’s a really neat way to end the school year,” said Hayley Beard, a third-grader from Brush Creek Elementary who attended last year.

Adults will supervise the event sponsored by AmericInn.

The boys will also have an opportunity to have fun while learning from their elders.

The second annual Eagle Valley High School football team’s overnight clinic will focus on various outdoor and indoor sports.

“This is an excellent opportunity for us to serve as mentors and friends to younger guys and it’s a great, fun night,” said junior Sean Barlett.

The “guys night out” includes pizza, followed by a movie and stories. Boys will also receive a T-shirt.

“Last year we had a lot of fun,” said junior Luis Landeros. “I encourage young boys to attend. We emphasize teamwork and sportsmanship.”

The boys’ clinic costs $40 for boys sleeping over and $25 for those who are not.
