The Art of Dance I and the Art of Dance II classes performed in the dance studio Dec. 14 for their combined showcase. The dances from their performance were created based on in-class assignments and also on the studentsâ own ideas, with help from dance teacher Katie Lowry â99.
“It was an equal balance. Our teacher choreographed a little and helped in the process, but students did a lot too,” Erin Pindus â13 said. “It was great to work with everybody and to express yourself creatively. Itâs fun to work with your friends.”
Although they have been working on their dances since the beginning of the year, it was only until the past month that students began rehearsing for the show. Rehearsal is mostly in class, but both classes also had one after school rehearsal.
“A lot of us also come in to work during free periods,” Conor Cook â13 said.
“I have really enjoyed choreographing dances this year,” Cook said. “Itâs a lot of fun seeing a piece come together and be ready for the showcase.”
