A Dancing King

On the evening of August 28th, 2015 a star was born at the Apex High School Varsity football game vs. Wake Forest.

Luckily, I caught the star pre-fame, and he showed me a few of his tricks. Not only is Chase Graves an exceptional dancer, but he also seemingly defies Newton’s First Law with his football- balancing skills. I was thoroughly impressed.




Halftime rolled around and Chase prepared to conquer the Massage Envy Apex Beaver Creek “Envy of the Game” dance-off. Max Laing, a senior at Apex High School, proved a worthy opponent. With DJ Snake’s Get Low blasting, the crowd went wild for Chase’s moves. In a later interview with our winner, Chase credits his success to his mother’s advice to, “..move, and then just start dancing along!”

Thank you Massage Envy!


Our champion received a Massage Envy Apex Beaver Creek Gift Card. The Cougar Club offers a huge thank you to Massage Envy for their support of Apex High School athletics and giving our school the opportunity to be a part of their Envy of the Game dance-off!

In our interview following the big win, Chase mentioned that he is “gonna be a star one day”. There you have it folks; a high-school football game with an appearance by a future dance-star.
