Brookings-Harbor student dancers dazzled their audience Wednesday night during the Bear Delights' Annual Dance Camp show.
The action-packed show featured dancers from every grade in the school district. Their performances elicited cheers from the packed gym at Brookings-Harbor High School.
The high school's Bear Delights dance team kicked off the show with the interpretive routine they'll perform during OSAA State Competition later this month, choreographed to "Roads" by Portishead.
The Bear Delights performed five routines, alternating with performances by dance campers, high school cheerleaders and dance team members from Azalea Middle School.
Dance campers were broken into four grade-level groups; each did their own routine.
Melody Gossard, Bear Delights coach, acknowledged the team's graduating seniors, introducing each girl and her parents.
"This is going to be one of the hardest group of seniors to let go," Gossard said.
The Bear Delights' fifth and final performance of the night was a dad/daughter dance that delighted the crowd.
Decked out in Hawaiian duds, the girls and their fathers shimmied and shook to the Beach Boys classic "Surfin' USA."
