JUNEAU EMPIRE FILE PHOTO The 1987 Juneau-Douglas High School drill team. As dance moves started to be incorportated into performances, keeping pace with the trend of other competitive teams, they changed their name to the JDHS Dance/Drill Team in 1999 and to the present day JDHS Dance Team in 2000. Their "Light March," performed in the dark with flashlights and glowsticks on jumpropes, is a tradition since 1963. According to their website, the JDHS Dance Team was the first Alaskan sports team to be featured on ESPN two years in a row with their wins in UDA National Competition held at Disney World in Orlando, Florida in 1999 and 2000.
