CCHS dancers give lively performance

Hip hop, jazz, ballet and Latin dance all were on exhibit at the CCHS dance performance, "A Choreographers Workshop," sponsored by the CCHS Dance Club and CCPOPS on December 3. The 21 student dancers provided a lively evening performance that was choreographed by CCHS students and directed by Dora Golding. Dancers of all abilities and experience danced together in a true example of what CCHS stands for — integration and opportunity for every student.

"I was delighted to see the very experienced dancers alongside the students who are trying dance for the first time," commented one CCHS parent. Chuck Brown, Music Chair and CCHS Choral and Drama Director, was delighted. "This was an experiment that worked so well. The dancers worked hard with Dora Golding to prepare and to publicly demonstrate their commitment. I am thrilled that Dance Club has developed to this level and look forward to the Club's further evolution," said Brown.

Each performance was set to familiar, contemporary music. Dance Club seniors and Co-Presidents Laura Belkner, Meaghan Riley and Samantha Stern made multiple contributions to both the choreography and performance. Juniors Kim Bowen and Kristen Lawson, and sophomores Laura Stiffler and Katrina Walker also choreographed some of the dances.

The Dance Club will resume meetings on Friday afternoons at 2:30 in mid-March. All CCHS students are welcome.
