The Panorama Dance Team under the direction of Kristi Vance and Leigh Ashley Martin is working on several community service projects.

The last three years at the State Competition they have been awarded the Outstanding Community Service Project Award.

One of those projects is assisting a foundation called “Giving Christmas”.

“Giving Christmas” provides gifts to make the holidays more enjoyable for local families and to enhance the season for the givers, as they rejoice in sharing what they have with those in need.

The dance team spent Sunday, Dec. 16 wrapping presents for the families that will have a much merrier Christmas this year, thanks to Giving Christmas.

“It is so important for me as a coach to instill in the girls the aspect of giving back to the community through community service. We appreciate the support we receive from our community,” said coach Kristi Vance. “Community service projects such as wrapping presents for“Giving Christmas” is an important aspect of our Dance Team Program at Panorama High School.”
