Performing art students show their skills at event
Dance, Art and Dessert was held on two days, April 23 and 24. Dance classes held a dance concert alongside an art show, with finger food snacks for attendees. The event helps raise money for both classes, so teachers can buy things they need for the upcoming year. Admission was by donation. Students from both classes provided desserts, which were available for a donation, too.
The dance theme was “Featuring Famous Cities.” 16 cities were made into 16 small dances, choreographed by dance students, with help from dance teacher Christina Sears. The dance company opened up the show representing “Lansing” by dancing the pep rally show, a mix which was made by a collaboration of the dancers and costumes were made by them. Some dancers performed a solo, like Isis Carter whose dance “Forks” was to the song “A Thousand Years.” For their finale, the entire cast danced to “That’s What I Like,” by Bruno Mars, choreography by Chontalice Hicks and Kurstina Simmons.
The art classes had a gallery walk featuring pieces from students in all art classes, including some 1st semester art student work. This year’s art theme was marine life, and featured works made using paper mache, watercolors, self portraits, book covers, and even a Converse shoe painted with marine life. This year as judges walked around to select pieces of art for the Ingham art show, for the first time ever two art pieces made by the same person got picked, art work made by Alex Flores.
