Middle school dancers will perform a showcase at the Saperstein Theatre Jan. 15.

The showcase will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., where admission will be free and no tickets will be required for admission.

The 60 dancers performing in the show are from three sections of Contemporary Dance Workshop I and one section of Contemporary Dance Workshop II.

The music that will be used in the showcase is primarily pop, featuring artists such as Fifth Harmony and Bastille.

Since their return from retreat week, students have been choreographing and rehearsing their own routines.

The number of dancers in each routine ranges from three to six people.

Middle School dance teacher Joe Schenck also created one class dance.

In the first half of the show, all three sections of Contemporary Dance Workshop I of about 45 dancers will participate in Schenck’s dance.

The second half of the show will feature a dance that follows the progression of the calendar year, entitled “20!4.”
