On Friday, March 25, the day before spring break, Bellbrook High School ran on an early dismissal schedule for the talent show. Talent show tickets were sold for a $2 donation and the money went to support people in Ukraine with disabilities through an organization called Fight For Right. Over all $1,048 was raised!
Because of the tight planning time, mostly seniors were invited to perform this year as they had no shows for the past two years. The show was hosted by seniors Ally Lewis and Sam Borszcz. The acts included school groups like the jazz band, the drone teams of Monkey Brains and Hog Riders, Winter Guard, and Indoor Percussion Ensemble. Mrs. Rose’s dance class choreographed and performed to “Boom Boom Pow” followed by the teachers showing off some classic lines dances. Junior Brooke Herres was joined by Bellbrook grad Anjali Edwards and their dogs who did “freestyle” dog dancing to “Holding Out for A Hero.” Solo acts included seniors Joey Dickman on guitar and singing “Murder in the City,” Morgan Powell singing “I’ll Always Remember You,” and Nitika Arora playing the piano. The signature number was senior band Scratch ‘n Sniff, who debuted at the school talent show in 8th grade. Students noted the show was well put together and they had a great time. School counselor Mr. Hartley said he enjoyed all the acts and notes how hard it is to go out and perform in front of over 400 of your peers.
