The MS8 Elite Steppers dazzled our middle school community at the last pep rally. With routines created by teachers Shaliya Nick and Skye Matthews, the Elite Steppers mixed the rhythmic step numbers with dance routines set to music. The next routine is going to be a surefire winner, with a mesmerizing new step routine and a skit, all created by teachers Skye Matthews and Shaliyah Nick. Catch them at the very next pep rally before Spring Break! — Teacher and Coach Theresa Soto
Our middle school joined NYC’s CHAMPS Sports and Fitness League for public middle schools this winter. Our first team is our Step Team, coached by Theresa Soto. The Elite Steppers started practicing in January and have already started performing at school pep rallies.
This spring, we will also join the CHAMPS developmental basketball league — our middle schoolers (both boys and girls) will work with Coach Arun Antonyraj to prepare for league play, slated for our second year in the program.
