The Needham High School Dance Team has been invited to perform during the half-time show of the 2012 Orange Bowl.
This marks the second time NHS Dance Team has participated in a Bowl Games of America event, having performed at the 2003 Outback Bowl in Florida.
The team is widely seen as one of the best in the state, having won two of the last three State Dance Championships.
To prepare for their high-profile performance, the team has been practicing for weeks based on choreography sent by video. Professional choreographers at a three-day dance conference leading up to the game will also help prepare the team for the showcase. During the show, student-athletes on the team will be performing with other Dance/Cheer teams from across the country.
The annual football game will be played at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida on January 4, 2012, and will air on ESPN at 8:00 p.m.
