Anticipation builds for winter dance show

Eva Gu, Staff Writer

This year’s promising winter dance show is on December 4 and 5, and there’s a seat in the audience with your name on it.

Ranging from Dance 2 to Dance 4, there are a variety of performances to enjoy.

Each class performs a themed class dance, and an array of student­-choreographed mandatory and non­-mandatory dances.

There is an exciting, diverse assortment of performances this year.

Dance 2 will take the stage with mandatory dances “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “Magic” and “Chandelier”, and non-­mandatories “Adorn” and “Nightmare Before Christmas”, as well as a class dance, “Hotline,” choreographed by Ms. Altman.

Meanwhile, Dance 3’s class dance will have a Bollywood theme. A “Guardians of the Galaxy”-themed performance with costumed dancers will also be included. Dance 3’s Nicholas Wang says, “[We will be performing] a wide variety. We have hip­-hop, jazz and Bollywood. We also have a Latin and movie-­themed dance.”

Rachel Su comments on this year’s Dance 4 performances, saying, “Since Dance 4 is mainly dancers with technical training, most of our dances are jazz or contemporary stuff, but we also have one hip-hop piece called “Flawless,” which is an extraordinary dance.”

Both dancers encourage people to come watch.

Wang also states, “We hope that you guys will love the show because we put a lot of time and effort into these dances. And we hope that a lot of new faces come out and join the program and join the family.”

The winter dance shows will take place on December 4 and 5, in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m.
