Huntley dance club 
to present showcase

HUNTLEY – Huntley High School’s Dance Club, Orchesis, will present its annual showcase at 7 p.m. Feb. 7, 8 and 9 in the school’s Performing Arts Center, at 13719 Harmony Road.

Tickets in advance are $5 and $7 at the door.

Audience members attending this year’s show, “Unspoken,” will see performances of many styles of dance, including hip hop, modern, lyrical, tap, jazz and Indian.

Orchesis began in 2008 with the focus of introducing students and the community to dance as an art. Orchesis has about 20 dancers in grades nine to 12.

Each year, Orchesis auditions two student-choreographed dances at the Illinois High School State Dance Festival. In 2010, they were selected to perform among the top 15 dance programs in the state.

Club members look forward to participating in the dance festival again this year.

For tickets to “Unspoken,” contact Orchesis sponsor Leslie Parrin by email at lparrin@district158.org.
