Sophomore Kamaya Norman is a co-captain of the dance team.

“Even though Kamaya is only a sophomore this year, I feel like she’s been on the team forever. She’s always been a quick learner and choreographs dances everyone loves. Kamaya also brings the team closer and keeps us all upbeat. I’m really glad we got the chance to be co-captains together this year,” senior and co-captain Hannah Silverman said.

Kamaya Norman has that ‘it’ factor,” dance team sponsor and coach Gwendolyn Harris said. “[She] has the stunning ability to control her environment and indirectly force people to challenge themselves and give their best. She entered the dance program eager and ready to learn quickly and willing to offer her talents to the team.”

Norman has never taken a dance class.
“It kinda just comes naturally. I didn’t take any dance classes or anything. I just do it. I work hard at practice, and I just do it,” Norman said.

Harris enjoys the energy Norman brings to the group.

“Her optimism and energetic presence made her a favorable member among her peers. Fast forward, Kamaya makes intelligent and creative decisions,” Harris said.

As co-captains, Norman and Silverman strive to improve the connections within the team.

“Recently we went to Panera and FroYo for bonding; we just hung out and ate after school,” Norman said. “We make sure everybody knows what’s going on. Like we make sure everyone knows what to wear at games. We plan our team bonding. Basically, we just keep everybody in one piece.”
