Welcome to North High School’s Big Dance! We hope that you have a wonderful experience and take great memories home with you when you leave. We intend to have a well-run competition which is respectful of everyone’s time and talents. We appreciate your participation and hope that we see you here again next year. Our thanks to our North High School Vocal Boosters – the 53rd St. Singers – and a host of volunteers for helping make this competition a success! 

North High students participate in a myriad of experiences which include award winning vocal and instrumental music, outstanding theatre programs, visual and performing arts, multiple academic-based clubs, and highly competitive athletic programs. Quality co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities are many and varied throughout the year.  We also boast the only program in the area that allows students to leave North High with an Associates degree from Scott Commuting College.  Our innovative, dedicated staff holds high academic standards for our diverse student body. Their efforts ensure that our students receive the richest academic opportunities. We encourage students to become involved and connect with their school. 

NHS is proud of our dedicated staff, our top-notch facilities, and our community support. North High continues to be a neighborhood focal point with ready access to the Holzworth Performing Arts Center and the North Family YMCA. 

We welcome your feedback regarding the Big Dance and our facilities. We strive to follow a path of continuous improvement and your comments can assist us with improving the Big Dance for years to come. It makes me proud to welcome you to Davenport North High School. I wish everyone a fun-filled Big Dance. I congratulate all of the participants and wish you all the best experience. Go Wildcats!
