Fulton Step Team Continues Winning Ways

Fulton teamFulton K-8's Wildcat Step and Dance Team continues its winning ways in its second decade, recently taking second place in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade, on top of a win last year in the parade and at a Magic Mountain competition.

The team, founded in 2000 by Sherie Edwards and Shanna Cofield, encourages high academic standards and good citizenship, while helping its members develop confidence and self-assurance.

They perform all over San Diego, including recent appearances as the Kuumba Fest, Lyceum Theater and local nursing homes. The team performs rhythmic beats by using their hands and feet in a coordinated exciting fashion of dance. The team also performs hip hop dance routines that are used in dance competitions or as an additional step performance.

Through the years the Fulton Wildcats have performed and/or competed in step shows, conferences, talent shows, street fairs, private parties, parades, news specials, dance competitions and more all over San Diego.

For more information on the team, contact Gwendolyn Kirkland, principal, at or (619) 262-0777.
