In a digitally constructed image made by junior graphic designer Richey, three of the Talonettes are spotlighted in photos from three of their competition dances. The photos were also taken by Caitlyn Richey. Each of the dances pictured will be performed Saturday night at the teams annual Spring Show.


The Talonettes will take the stage at 6:30 Saturday night in the auditorium for one last dance.

For the current seniors, who missed out on this tradition last year due to COVID-19, being able to finish off their year with this performance matters. This will also be the first spring show for those who are “newbies” on the team this year as well as the sophomores who missed this experience last year.

The theme for the 2021 Spring Show is “A Night at the Movies.” The dances performed by the Talonettes and the Prosper High School dance students are choreographed to songs from movies. The dancers share their excitement for the show with friends and family as it promises to be a show loved by those of all ages.

The Talonettes will kick off the show with a high-energy, broadway-style routine to the song “Let’s Go to the Movies,” since the theme for the show is “A Night at the Movies.” They also plan to perform a wide variety of dances, including these:

3 team competition dances.

Officer competition dances.

Award-winning Elite dance.

A senior dance.

4 dances choreographed by the officers.

A few solos.

Performing alongside the Talonettes will be the Prosper High School Dance classes, who will each perform a student choreographed number, as well as a few of the middle school drill teams.

To wrap up their show and their 2020-2021 year, the Talonettes will perform their traditional closer to the song “Last Dance.” According to team members, this will be an emotional and long-anticipated moment. They also said this dance will be touching to family and friends in the audience, and especially the dancers on the stage. In past years, tears have been shed by team members as they dance together a final time and the seniors and officers ‘turn in’ their hats and batons.

People can buy tickets for the show at the Talonettes website.
