Orchesis Dance Troupe is a dance appreciation and performance group focused on various types of dance, such as: modern, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, swing, salsa, bachata, waltz, and more. Practices consist of training in dance technique, learning about the history and evolution of dances, and rehearsal for upcoming performances. Another core focus of Orchesis is on learning and applying the elements of choreography. Dancers learn how to create dance pieces for the Spring Showcase based on a theme using the elements of space, time and energy.
Orchesis is a district club, so it is open to both East and West students. No experience is required to attend, and you can show up to a meeting before showcase auditions (usually in Feb) at any time! Wear comfy clothes you can easily move around in, and bring an extra pair of clean socks.
