Micheal Galentine, a Mr. Brea contestant, strikes a pose to the crowd as he and the other Mr. Brea contestants perform a choreography to a mash up of many hit songs. This year’s winter rally showcased other performances by BOHS Cheer, Dance Production, Show Choir, and more.

Bright neon colors and disco balls welcomed the Wildcats in the Main Gym for this year’s winter rally on Jan. 20. 

For this year’s “Disco Theme,” ASB decorated the Main Gym with posters, bedazzled lights, and disco ball balloons.

To begin the rally, Student Welfare Commissioner and senior, Philip McWade, led the school with the chant “Let’s Get Wild.” To keep with the theme, each grade cheered for their team in a game of “Disco Hoop,” where players tossed an inflatable disco ball into trash cans. The freshmen and junior classes won the round against the sophomores and seniors.

“The theme and decorations were super cute and all the performances went really well. Overall, the rally ran super smoothly from behind the scenes,” Irene Kim, ASB president and senior, said.

Following tradition, winter sports were introduced as each varsity team presented their seniors and their upcoming games. “Getting to run through the poster with my team was a special moment. I felt proud seeing my team represent girls’ basketball,” Alisha Choi, sophomore, said.

After sport introductions was a performance by the annual Mr. Brea student contestants to show off their school spirit in leather jackets and shades pertaining to the Top Gun theme. “We had practices once or twice a week during lunch and it was all just really fun. I enjoyed getting to perform in my last winter rally,” Michael Galentine, Mr. Brea contestant and senior, said.  

To close off the performances, Dance Production performed a dance to a remix of the songs: “Dancing Queen,” “Party Rock,” “I Just Wanna Rock,” “Family Ties,” and “Humble”. 

“I think the rally was groovy. The theme, performances, and decorations really brought everything together,” Kahlai Cruser, Pep Commissioner and senior, said.
