PREVIOUS STORY: Thanksgiving is next week, and with that comes the Thanksgiving tradition, the Macy's Day parade in New York City. 

If you're watching next Thursday morning, you may see some familiar faces. 

The Murray County High School dance team was selected by the Spirit of America Dance Stars to perform on 6th avenue in the Big Apple. 

"A lot of people keep asking what're you doing? Are you excited? When do you perform and are we going to see you on TV," said senior Gracie Fenwick on the dance team. 

They cheer on everyone from the sideline, but come next Thursday, Murray County High will be cheering for them-- at the 93rd annual Macy's Day Parade.

"They're beyond deserving. These girls do a lot for the community. They're here every home game performing for our home town crowd," dance team coach, Tara Jones, told Channel 3.

The team was accepted into the parade back in July, they say the reality still hasn't set in. 

"We have been on cloud nine preparing for this opportunity," said Jones. 

Jones says she's taking 12 girls from Murray County High all the way to New York City. 

"We'll hop on a train in Gainseville and ride on a train 18 hours to New York," Fenwick said. 

Fenwick says she's never been on a plane or train so this is very exciting. 

"It's cool to think I'm getting on a train, just something different than a car ride," said Fenwick. 

All eyes are next Thursday will be on their green and red sparking uniforms. 

"I'm just kind of hoping we stand out a little, in a good way not a bad way," Fenwick told Channel 3.
