Our History and Purpose

In 2019, the East High School Bearettes were formed under the direction of Head Coaches Alexandra Limperos and Lindsey Young. Assistant Coaches included Michalah Jackson and Mellreanna Ferguson.

The inaugural line was comprised of 8 talented young women who selected the name 'Bearettes.' These young women also helped establish a culture and traditions for the line.

The purpose of the Bearettes is to enhance the East High School marching band show visually by integrating drill design, dance choreography, equipment work, and showmanship. In addition, the Bearettes also perform with the marching band in the stands at football games, and at community events such as parades!

Scholars who are a part of the Bearettes are currently trained in dance, flag, and flash hoop. We hope to integrate baton, rifle, saber, air-blades, and other special equipment in the coming seasons!

The Golden Bearettes "style" can be best described as a combination of Lifetime's series "Bring It" and the movie "Drumline" meet high school marching band. Our style was formed by melding the following styles together:

  • Traditional NE Ohio high school flag, dance, and majorette line

  • Drum Corps International (DCI)

  • Winter-guard International (WGI)

  • Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)

  • Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC)

Our 2021-2022 line consists of several talented young women and men who have a passion for music and performing!



Thanks to your support we were able to have a successful first season! Paws Up!
