This past Saturday Miss Gem County, Megan Wilson, had her at-risk prevention program, Dancing Queens, perform at Youth Appreciation Day in Emmett at Gem Island Sports Complex.
Megan gave a quick speech about what Dancing Queens is all about. Aside from Polynesian dancing, it is a program comprised of seven lessons. The lessons covered range from peer pressure and self-esteem to nutrition and others topics geared towards helping young girls avoid becoming involved in risky activities that could hinder her success. They performed a hula to “Hula Girl” and ended with a hip-shaking Tahitian to “Hinakura.”
