On March 31st and April 1st, the dance department held its last show of the 2021-2022 dance season. The annual spring show showcased all PHS dance classes and even dance classes from Woodridge and White Oak Middle school and local dance studios.

“The spring showcase is a performance where we showcase all the dances that we have done the whole year and we add a couple of new dances just for the show,” said senior Golden Grace, Ashleigh Allgood. ¨It is basically just to show our parents and family members what we do the whole year.¨

The spring dance showcased dances from the Golden Graces, Porter Dance Company, Porter dance department, Woodridge and White Oak Middle school dance department, Stacey’s Dance Studio, and Meckka Dance Studio.

The showcase was opened by a high-energy dance by the Golden Graces and students from the dance department. Some dancers enjoyed this high-energy dance because it is something they normally don’t do.

“I’m excited for our opener one,” said Allgood. “It is different from what we normally do; it’s more high-energy and fun to perform.”

The dance show was then closed by the senior Graces performing their senior dance, a dance that the senior graces choreographed themselves.

“I’m excited for our senior dance. Last year the seniors didn’t get their senior dance, but we choreographed it ourselves and we are dancing to the Hannah Montan song,¨ said senior Golden Grace, Julia Penna. “I think it is going to be so much fun and sad at the same time, but I’m so excited for it.”

The night ended with an end-of-season Golden Grace presentation, where memories and pictures of the season were shared.

“The season has been good,” said Penna. “We did really good in competition and it has been really good lately. We are really excited to finish the year with the spring show.”

The annual spring dance show is the last dance show that the dance department has. For seniors in the dance department, this means that this is the last dance showcase that they will have in high school.

 “We are super excited about the show and for all of our dance students to have an opportunity to perform in a professional setting and observe all of their hard work and dedication this school year,” said dance director Julia Kelly.
