Welcome to the S-C High Voltage Dance Team website!
High Voltage is an exhibition dance team providing a variety of entertainment by performing jazz, pom, kick, and hip hop routines at an advanced technical level.
We learn an average of 15 dance routines per year and perform at home varsity football games, basketball games (girls & boys), pep assemblies, and other events.
The primary function of a dance team is to effectively execute a school spirit program that supports the athletic teams and promotes the school itself by providing entertainment at sporting events, parades, and pep assemblies. As ambassadors of the school and community, dancers have the responsibility to uphold, to reflect, and to project team goals and ideals in such a positive way as to increase public awareness and respect of the team.

Show up in every moment like you’re meant to be there.

TEAM HISTORY--just a few fun facts
High Voltage was originally a pep club named SPIZ at Smith-Cotton. Many dance moms and grandmothers of current and former High Voltage members were SPIZ members.
Coach Willadsen was a freshman dancer in 1991 when the team name "High Voltage" was chosen to reflect that it was no longer a pep club.
The team's performing focus has shifted over the years from dance to color guard with the S-C Tiger Pride Marching Band and back to dance.
SPIZ was revived as a pep club by Student Council around 2005, coming full circle back to Smith-Cotton. Around the same time a separate color guard for the S-C Tiger Pride Marching Band was created, giving High Voltage its current dance performing focus at fall and winter events.
