The Altoona Locomotion, a group of 34 singer/dancers, 9 band members, and several crew people, has been in existence for nearly thirty years. It is a co-curricular group that rehearses on Monday and Thursday evenings.

Over the past several years, the Locomotion has placed in the finals at Totino Grace, La Crosse-Logan, Eau Claire-Memorial Winterfest, Brodhead, Tomah, and Grand Champions at Albert Lea, Colby, and Monona Grove. Locomotion's vocal director is Justin Ranek, and the show band is under the new direction of Brianna Hepfler. We are also very excited to be choreographed by Ben Schrank for the second consecutive year. We hope you enjoy the show! Read more about Locomotion.
