Established in 1994, the Eastlake Dance Team has created a rich legacy of successful teams, formed an extended family that dancers are welcomed into, and always work to give back to the Eastlake and Sammamish communities in different ways each year.
For over a decade our coaching staff has been comprised of Eastlake Dance alumni, and has worked to build and strengthen the foundation of our program each year through the ongoing development of our core covenants.
OUR CORE COVENANTS
Definition: A group of people affiliated either by recognized birth, affinity, or co-residence, or some combination of these
Our family is our foundation. The family we have gained with our teammates & coaches, as well as the extension into our families and supporters outside of practice. We recognize and respect that all of us are here for a reason, and that whatever goals we set our sights on, it takes everyone’s energy, attention, and effort. We respect the family, and celebrate the family, and harness the collective power we create to ultimately take this program to the next level.
Definition: The ability to do something that frightens one.
Courage allows us to accomplish things that we thought we could not. Everything challenge we face with courage we are open to the possibility of succeeding, and recognize that any failure we experience is an opportunity for growth moving forward. We are courageous with our bodies, our minds, and our hearts.
Definition: provide the energy to set and keep something in motion; an innate, biologically determined urge to attain a goal or satisfy a need
Our drive is our fire. The fire inside powers us forward to push through challenges towards the best version of ourselves. Our drive is the thing that sets us apart from other programs, the thing that makes us powerful, and the thing that makes us excel past anyone else’s notions of who we can be as a team.
