The Marshall High School Mavettes rehearse on Monday for their upcoming spring show "Live From New York" at the Marshall High School auditorium.

The Marshall High School Mavettes are ready to take guests on a trip through the Big Apple as part of its annual spring show, "Live From New York."

Show times are set for 7 p.m. on April 28 and 29 at the Marshall High School auditorium.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from any Mavette or at the door.

The 41 team member Mavettes line is under the direction of Heather Hill and senior captain Hailee George.

"The show will feature performances that will take the audience on a 'tour' of different landmarks throughout New York, like Central Park, Wall Street and Yankee Stadium," Hill said on Monday. "There is also a performance remembering 9/11."

The 21 set show will feature dances in the style of pom, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, tap, kick, hip-hop, modern and novelty.

The team's six member officer line will also perform two dances.

"One of our high school band and choir students, Anna Garbs will perform a solo and our six Mavettes managers will perform a funny routine," Hill said.

Hill said this has been a great year for the Mavettes who are coming off of their recent competition where they won more than a dozen awards.

"Six of the performances in this show are from competition so people will get a chance to see those award winning dances," she said.

George said she enjoys the theme of this year's show.

"It's been a great, hard-working year for the Mavettes and I really like the style of dances in this year's show," George said. "I also enjoy getting to dance and bond with my Mavette sisters."

Hill said, like New York City, this year's show is filled with energy.

"These girls do very well at high energy dances, especially the captain (George) and there are a lot of high energy dances in this performance," Hill said.

The Mavettes' newest members, 12 freshman who recently made the team, will also get a chance to take the stage for one dance at the show.
