  • YME Invitational
    It was a victorious homecoming for the Yellow Medicine East Silhouettes as they swept the varsity divisions while playing host at the annual YME Dance Team Invitational Saturday.
    As temperatures plummeted and the winds howled outside, fans and dancers hurried their way in and huddled inside Espeland Gymnasium to see the Silhouettes take center stage at their home meet.
    The battle, would be in the varsity kick division, with would-be state contender BOLD nipping at YME’s heels to take a solid second place finish while garnering some first place rankings from the judges.
    Meanwhile, in jazz, it was a runaway with the Silhouettes raising the bar for originality once again in this division with a complicated, dark, visually compelling and theatrical dance performance grounded by the song “Uninvited” by Alanis Morissette and distinguished by darkly dramatic expression; uncommon compared to the usually over emphasized smiles associated with danceline.
    Saturday’s competition shows the Silhouettes are right where they want to be as the prepare for the West Central Conference competition in Olivia this weekend.
