The Watchung Hills Dance Ensemble is taking over the Performing Arts Center once again to showcase their amazing talent!

The Dance Ensemble, comprised of students from all four grade levels, is currently preparing for their annual Spring Showcase, and have been preparing for many months now. This performance will be over the course of two nights, Thursday, May 18, and Friday, May 19, in the Performing Arts Center.

Although most of the dances being performed are in the contemporary style, many include jazz and ballet techniques as well.

Dancer Noelle Kulisz (freshman) explained that “each student choreographer choreographed a piece of their own style, so each piece that they have created [is] quite unique within their own style.”

Student choreographers include Ariana Stoddard (sophomore), Arielle Ostry (senior), Jessica Gittleman (senior), Katherine Paterson (junior), Kostandena Vayas (senior), Michelle Shui (senior), Morgan Pravato (senior), Sasha Correa (senior), Stephanie Mauro (senior), and Stephanie Moreno (senior)

Another dancer, Emma Kotar, explained that one dance that stood out to her was the one choreographed by Katherine Paterson. “[All of the dances] are really unique and I really like them all, but [my favorite is] probably Kat’s dance because it’s all about body positivity.”

Similarly, Kulisz expressed her love for Kostandena Vayas’ dance. “In the beginning, everyone bonded together through a dynasty and we are trying to build it stronger, however, in the end the dynasty falls and there is only one person left.”

Come see Paterson’s and Vayas’ dances, and many more amazing performances, at the Dance Ensemble Spring Showcase, on Thursday, May 18 and Friday, May 19 at 7 pm in the Performing Arts Center!
