Eight members of the Central Washington University Dance Team are featured in a Staples back-to-school TV commercial airing nationwide starting today. The group earned its four seconds of fame and $1,000 after winning a video contest. The dance team, a CWU collegiate sport club, was one of three groups chosen out of 118 applicants.
The team’s portion of the commercial was shot at the Wildcat Shop in the Student Union and Recreation Center on campus and the dancers are wearing CWU gear.
“We were asked to put our own spin on the original dance move called the shopping cart and we choreographed our own routine to their song selection,” said Michaela Boere, captain of the CWU Dance Team.
Boere, Karlee Olive, Haley Alderson, Elizabeth Thompson, Haley Miller, Megan Hoy, Nichole Fazzino and Hanah Rasmussen are featured in the commercial. The entire dance team was not able to participate.
The CWU Dance Team performs at CWU athletic events and homecoming activities and at events in the Ellensburg community. The dancers focus on jazz and hip-hop styles, while also incorporating pom and kick.
