Special Olympians get together for Victory Dance

By  | 

SHERMAN, TX -- Special Olympians kicked up their heels in Sherman Thursday.

These students from all over Texoma got together for the 10th annual Victory Dance at the Sherman Municipal Ballroom.

The olympians say it's a chance to relax and just have fun in contrast to their usual timed events at state competitions.

Event coordinator Danna Percell says the dance was also a teaching tool for the students.

Percell said, "They have to ask someone to dance or excuse me they get to use their communication skills that we work on in the school."
