Welcome to the home of the Lariettes Dance Team and Belles Drill Team at George Ranch High School. The Lariettes were established in 2010 with the opening of GRHS. In 2012, TaShane O'Haver became the Director of the Lariettes. Since Ms. O'Haver became the Director, the Lariettes have won 4 national titles as well as other competition titles, they have attended Monsters of Hip Hop for 2 years, they have performed in the AT&T Cotton Bowl in front of an audience of over 75,000 people, and were a part of the 2014 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
In December 2013, Mrs. O'Haver created LCISD's first JV dance program after receiving approval from Mrs. Haack (GRHS Principal) and Mr. Estrada (LCISD Director of Fine Arts). The JV Drill Team, known as Belles, will debuted during the 2014 Longhorn football season. The creation of the Belles welcomed our first Assistant Dance Director, Mrs. Nicole Brodie, who will also be teaching English I.
The signature color of Lariettes is maroon and the signature color of Belles is black.
