VCHS Dance Ensemble to present “Next Steps” concert May 30-31 at Maxine

May 22, 2013

Nearly 150 dancers will be featured in the Valley Center High School Dance Program’s annual Dance Concert “Next Steps” May 30-31 in the Maxine Theater.

Performances are scheduled for Thursday May 30 at 6:30 p.m., Friday May 31 at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, June 1 at 1:30 p.m. & 6:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for $12 each and can be purchased at the door or online at Proceeds benefit the student dance program. Box office opens one hour before show times.

More than 145 dancers will perform 24 pieces originally choreographed by the students, guest choreographers, and Carli Morasco, VCHS dance director. The eight senior dancers will showcase their completely choreographed pieces. Dances will be a mixture of Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Hip-Hop and a little bit of Character.

“The concert theme is “Next Steps” as the dancers have been focusing on establishing and working towards accomplishing their goals in a series of steps,” said Mrs. Morasco. “These goals are not only created in relationship to their dance moves and abilities, but to their future hopes and dreams. I encourage our community to come out and support this performance. The students have been working hard all year to create and perfect each number.”

Sales from tickets and program advertising are used to raise the money needed to purchase costumes and props for future performances. They continue to work hard to fundraise so that the students can have access to the art of dance in addition to their academics.
