The West Newton Ele­men­tary dance pro­gram re­cently held its first Golden Cat­walk Fashion Show at Lib­erty Mid­dle School.

A crowd of more than 300 cheered and rose to their feet as the dance teams per­formed and fu­ture supermodels took the run­way. More than 150 stu­dents and ten teach­ers sashayed, mod­el­ing out­fits in cat­e­gories such as trendy, sportswear, cul­tural and for­mal at­tire.

Dance team in­struc­tors KiTonya McCoy, Jes­sica Weaver and Chans­ley Wren expressed con­cern af­ter view­ing the judges’ com­ments at last year’s dance com­pe­ti­tion stat­ing that the dance team needed to be in uni­form. So they de­cided that a fashion show would be a great way to raise funds for the uni­forms.

This year the dance team will not only com­pete to hold their cham­pi­onship ti­tle, but will also par­tic­i­pate in the Cov­ing­ton and Cony­ers Christ­mas pa­rades and the Martin Luther King Jr. Pa­rade in At­lanta. They can also be seen dur­ing half-time at bas­ket­ball games through­out Newton County. The team is seek­ing spon­sors and com­mu­nity sup­port

Tak­ing the stage: Kayla Wy­att and Travon Clay par­tic­i­pated in the West Newton Ele­men­tary Golden Cat­walk Fashion Show re­cently. The show will be used to pro­vide uni­forms for the school’s dance pro­gram.
