Dance Club is an organization that allows it members to experience the wonder of dance and the joy of performing. Students are exposed to different styles of dance from ballet to theater, modern, hip hop, tap and jazz. They learn to see dance as an art, a way of expression. Sometimes it is just the simple expression of fun and joy and other times there is a poignant message to be relayed.
Dance Club allows even the non-dancer to be part of the excitement of the performance. Everyone in Dance club participates in the wonder of the annual show.
While it bears the title of “club”, if is far from the connotation of the word. Dance Club requires hard work, loyalty, dedication, and commitment.
The hard work begins in September and culminates in a performance on the Waterford High School stage in March. In the fall we work on a jazz piece. Then we start on a new piece in December . If you are involved in a fall sport you can join the Dance Club in December. Student choreography and other dance pieces also start in December all to add to the approximately twenty pieces that will make up the performance in March.
Dance club has been a staple of Waterford High School since the 60’s. It has grown in numbers and popularity over the years. Most recently the numbers have grown from eight students in 1995 to the sixty seven members that participated last year.
Come join the fun!!
