Highlands dance team hosts princess and superhero breakfast for Fort Thomas children


By Lexie Crawford, Highlands freshman

“I want to meet them all!” said Abigail, elated, at the princess and superhero breakfast Saturday morning at Woodfill Elementary School.

For the past several years, the Highlands varsity dance team has hosted this breakfast as a fundraiser for trips, costumes, and other expenses that arise over the year. Juniors and seniors on the team dress up as Disney princesses, while a few male friends of theirs dress up as superheroes. During and before breakfast, provided by Top This Donut Bar, Chick-Fil-A, and parents on the team, the princesses and superheroes walk around meeting and talking to the children, signing their autograph books, and taking pictures.


Elizabeth Pulsfort said, “We came after we got a flyer from Belladance. Plus, we’ve come several years already. It’s just a great event to support the local dance team.” 

After the families eat breakfast, the dance team members show off their skills on stage. The children enjoy seeing this, because not only do they get to listen to some of their favorite Disney songs, but they also have the thrill of seeing the characters they believe to be real, dance.


Katie Buecker, senior at HHS, said, “This is a really awesome thing to do because you get to see all these kids’ faces light up, and they really believe you are these princesses and superheroes. It’s really fun to be in character and see them having such a good time!”
