The Life of a Choreographer

Alaysha Bond
Issay Eyobel, Quinlan McMahon, and Trip Jackson, and Cannon Whorton blew the crowd away performing to “It’s Raining Men” choreographed by Faith McCurdy and Natlie Moore.

Cypress Creek High School offers many different opportunities to be involved in. From arts to sports, there is something for everyone. One program, one of the biggest at CCHS, is Dance. In this program, students have the opportunity to become choreographers, some junior Issay Eyobel is now. Eyobel is a dancer/choreographer for the dance department and has been in the department for three years now. He got into dance because of K-Pop, specifically J-Hope who is a South Korean singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer, and dancer. He describes his dance styles as contemporary with more isolation. Eyobel wanted to join the dance department at Cypress because he wanted a foundation in dance; he likes to dance and perform with people at a higher level than him to give him a challenge.  

Once Issay was at the end of his sophomore year, he decided to audition to be a choreographer. He wanted to be a choreographer because when he joined the dance department in his first year, Eyobel had a choreographer who inspired him to do it. He talked about how cool it was watching him. As a choreographer, Eyobel, loves instructing the new people coming in, starting at the dance department, and watching his pieces on stage.  

A piece of advice that Eyobel has for people that are trying to start dance or wanting to start dance is, “to just learn how your body moves.” He says, “When choreographing new combinations/dances for showcase it is a struggle to get over the mental block.” After he graduates, Issay wants to go to college for dance. After this, he wants to sign with a dance company and be a choreographer.
