The concert featured sixteen routines that featured several styles of dance, including ballet, hip hop, musical theater, and step dancing.

“It’s really tough. You stumble, you fall, and then you have to go back and go through things and make sure it’s perfect. But then when you get on stage, everything just pays off,” stated Alyx Ruibal, a member of the Dance Company. She was one of five featured dancers in the show, dancing to the song “Homeless” by Imogen Heap.

Other featured dancers included Emma Quong and Anna Antselevich in “Take the Lead” by Lena Horne feat. Q-tip, Emma Eichler in “Once Upon a Time” by La Nouba in Cirque du Soleil, and Bradley Bunn in “Say Something” by A Great Big World.

The dance team now looks forward to performing again for their spring concert.
