The Woodcreek dance show, “Bright Lights Big Cities” was a spectacular hit that drew hundreds of viewers. The show was offered November 30th thru December 2nd at 7pm in the WHS theater. Tickets were $10 and were sold at the door, or could be purchased ahead of time. Lights hit the stage, and group by group, dancers pranced across the stage to “Light of Christmas.” Here, the audience got a sneak peak of future outfits and dance routines later to come. Ed Sheeran’s “Barcelona” came on next and really cheered up the audience as an exciting and upbeat Mediterranean dance. The next couple dances continued with much joy from the audience, and then we reached the Varsity Boys Dance. I don’t know if anyone in the audience wasn’t laughing at the pure humor choreographed from these boys! This was one of my personal favorites by a longshot. A few more dances passed until the last dance, “Darkness” of act one, which left me personally a little unsettled. “Darkness” was supposed to be a robotic, innovative dance, and had dancers crawling up the theater steps at the end. I realize what they were trying to portray with this, however, I don’t think it worked very well, and most of the audience felt uncomfortable. This could have been a great dance, I just don’t think it fit the theme very well. Act two passed with some great energy from “Drummer Boy,” “Lights Down Low,” and “Dance Class 101.” From the consensus of the people around me, everyone seemed to enjoy the styles and rhythmic dancing to these songs. “Jingle Bell Rock” was also a hit with the crowd, as it was a remake of the famous Mean Girls scene. A classic dance was “New York at Christmas” where the dancers had a famous “Rockettes” dance. Sarah Lafazia(10), a dancer on the WHS JV dance team, and student in Dance 3, said she dances because, “after taking it fall term my freshman year I just had such a positive experience and it is a very fun class to take whether you are experienced or not; it is just a really good atmosphere.” For future dancers interested in the program, Sarah says, “just take dance one and if you like it, keep going. It doesn’t matter if you have zero experience because it is also just a really fun class to take, even if you don’t plan to pursue dance. In conclusion, the WHS dance show was a very entertaining two hours that was definitely worth my $10.
