Silverline Shines at 4th Annual Christmas Spectacular

Thursday, December 21st, if you weren't at the Fine Arts Center for Winn Silverline's 4th Annual Christmas Spectacular you missed out on the classiest Christmas ticket in town!
For the past 4 years, Silverline has successfully hosted a Christmas Recital filled with routines by not only them, but various schools across the district.
This year, so many schools expressed interest that it outgrew Winn's auditorium and had to be moved the SAC - Fine Arts Building.
With over 300 performers, Silverline filled the house with many cheers and applause  for every team who performed under the bright lights of center stage. 
Silverline of course dazzled with their opening and closing acts, but also had stand out performances from the freshmen and sophomore dancers.
A definitely highlight was the senior routine!
These girls were freshmen when the 1st annual Christmas Spectacular was hosted and it brought tears to the audience's eyes watching them do their final bow.
As it continues to grow, it certaintly has become the district's premiere Christmas show!
Silverline sparkled last night and Maverick Nation would like to thank them and their coaches, Mrs. Denise Villarreal and Mrs Selina Martinez, for another beautifully entertaining performance. 
A special thanks to all the teams that came out to perform and contributed to the great success!
WHAT A SHOW!
