The Reveliers

The spring show is the culmination of the Reveliers’ dances. It is held annually, and it is the result of weeks of practice, dedication, and time management. After four years of countless practices, pep rallies, and spring shows, the Reveliers bid farewell to their seniors at the spring show held last Friday, April 16. 

“Our last show was really bittersweet, especially since our director Mrs. Lowrey was unexpectedly quarantined and couldn’t make it,” senior Caitlin Harwood said. “Luckily, Ms. Trotter, the assistant director, pulled through and did her best to make things run as smoothly as possible.”

Practice for the spring show began early in the school year. The officer line practices with the team daily before school, and during the third nine weeks grading period, the Reveliers also meet daily after school.

“Time management is a huge part of being a Revelier,” Harwood said. “The daily practices don’t leave a lot of time for homework, so utilizing your time wisely is crucial. And for the spring show, there are tons of extra practices and dress rehearsals.”

The hard work eventually pays off as the Reveliers walk on stage and deliver a breathtaking performance at the spring show. Once the show is over, the Reveliers are met by their friends and families and are handed flowers and bouquets. 

“I think I speak for most of the seniors when I say it doesn’t quite feel real that it’s ending,” Harwood said. “I wasn’t on the Gingham Girls at Knox, so this is the first time I’m really leaving [a team] behind, and it’s pretty sad.”

Though a bittersweet ending for the seniors, the spring show serves as a love letter to the many lifelong memories and experiences the Reveliers share with one another. From the T Bar M camps in New Braunfels to the trips to Disneyland and Universal Studios, there are plenty of memories that the Reveliers will look back on fondly for the rest of their lives. 

“I will forever be grateful for the ways that this team has molded me into the person I am today,” senior Ellie Tuller said. “These friendships and experiences are going to last a lifetime.”

As the seniors prepare to move on from their time as Reveliers, the team is looking forward to the new members and memories of the next school year. With tryouts to be held later in the week, the new officer line is in the works. Those interested in joining should contact Mrs. Lowrey or the Revliers account on Instagram (@twcpreveliers).

“I wish I could do it all again,” senior Lily Oleksy said. “I’m so thankful for everything I have learned. These girls have been like my sisters and I can’t wait to see what everyone will do in the future.”
