Kicking off the winter concerts, the dance concert featured performances that relate to “The Nutcracker” but have their own twist. Dancers from grades seven to 12 incorporated styles from around the world, including those from Africa, Bollywood and the Caribbean, to display the skills they’ve learned throughout the semester Dec. 5.
“I’ve never had a bad episode of stage fright but definitely as I have gotten older I put more pressure on myself because it’s one of the last times I’ll be able to dance on stage with these people,” Dance Ensemble president senior Maddison Flanagan said. “It makes me sad to think that I’ll be leaving soon but also excited for what the future holds for me and the other dancers.”
