Dancing with the Stars

West Springfield Dance Team


Mama Kat's Prompt #5: Your summer recap in a poem & pictures.


They showed up this summer
on a wing and a prayer
thought they'd turn in their tape
didn't know they'd be there

on the stage out in Cali
in front of the throngs,
my cherubs made AGT
for so very long.

YouTube's such an outlet
for those who have got
the least smidgeon of talent
of that there's no doubt.

But our dance team just wowed them
with their ghoulish routines
and they came back four times
must have been in their genes

or their makeup, their hair,
their struts and their stuff
the "dark side" of Hip-Hop
was always enough.

My cherubs, they showed 'em,
Piers, Howie and Sharon
that they have the right stuff
and can even scare 'em.

And even though they won't
continue their quest,
we'll all be right proud
when they come home to nest.

So, let's hear it for high school
and talent and awe
that the West Springfield Dance Team
inspired in us all!

I felt bad for them last night, but these kids are so talented they can't help but land on their feet! They can take their new-found fame and use it to launch themselves. Hollywood isn't the only place to dance! They are fantastic!

LOVE THIS - what an experience for them (and you). And the poem captured it in such a unique way. Stopping by from Mama Kat's!

That was a well thought poem of the team. I have not seen them dance but I would think it captured how they feel and how people feel about them. I hate they did not win but they should never give up. I hope they keep trying for their dream and it will eventually happen.
