Senior Dorians To Participate in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade


  • Friday, November 19, 2021 -- The four Mountain Brook High School senior Dorians will participate in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday morning in New York City. Addison Wint, Catherine Guilsher, Emily Moore, and Sarah Simon will represent the Dorians and MBHS in a continued tradition.

    The group ‘Spirit of America' puts on the parade yearly and around 800 high school dancers from across the country are selected to perform through the streets of New York. Dorians have been in the past but never while these four seniors have been on the team.

    “We thought that it would be a really good opportunity to go and do what our program has done in the past,” Wint said. “We saw the program and all the activities and decided it was something we really wanted to do.”

    After submitting a dance video to Spirit of America and being selected in July, the four seniors began planning their trip. Their days will consist of two four-hour rehearsals. In between and after rehearsals, the girls plan to tour the city, see a Broadway show and watch the Rockettes.

    You can watch the 2021 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade live on NBC Thursday morning from 8:00-11:00 A.M. CST.
