The CRHS Band Encore Dance Section is the Visuals Section of the CRHS Cougar Band during the Fall Marching/Football competition season. Similar to saying “tuba section” “drumline” or “flute section”, we say “Encore” and everyone knows which section of the Band we are talking about. The Encore Dance Section of the band performs at ALL Band events during the fall, including local community events, parades, football games, and band competitions. Dancers learn teamwork, work to build strong positive attitudes, improve their personal fitness level, and form long-lasting friendships. In addition, every current Cougar STAR was once in the CRHS Cougar Band Encore Section as a prerequisite to auditioning during their sophomore year. We do however, have some dedicated Encore Dancers that choose to remain with the Band their entire 4 years of High School!
Our Encore Band Dance Section participates as part of the CRHS Cougar Band Marching Fall show each fall marching/football season, and spends time learning marching form, sets, choreography, and teamwork, as well as expanding their dance technique. We are THE CR Band family. This positive and encouraging Dance Company promotes discipline, responsibility, self-respect, honesty, and dedication. The CRHS Cougar Band Encore Dance Section stays busy after school, as well as requiring academic success per UIL guidelines, with help along the way as needed to succeed.
The CRHS Cougar Band Encore Dance Section is directed by Holly Trotchie. Our current representatives on the Cinco Ranch Band Boosters executive board are Amanda Martin & Tricia Jordan.
