Winter Showcase is “Fire on Fire”

Dance Department mesmerizes crowd.
Alaysha Bond
The blue hue creates a winter compliment as the CCHS dancers express themselves during the winter showcase at the IPAC.

Cypress Creek High School’s Conservatory of Dance Arts stages their semiannual showcase of the 2023-24 school year, titled “Elements” on December 5 and 6. The showcase brought together hundreds of families and friends, the performance held a theme cleverly tied to the dance titles such as “Fire on Fire” and “It’s Raining Men.” 

Taking the stage, dancers of diverse levels and styles brought together practiced routines that had been in the making for months. 

Dancer senior Gianna Sercu expressed her emotions of being able to perform on stage, “It feels powerful.” Sercu added, “I felt like it was really smooth. It went really well, and the crowd really liked it.” 

Sophia Henrich, an audience member, shared, “The showcase was so fun and entertaining to watch, I really enjoyed the songs and costumes I loved seeing all my friends performing on stage.”  

The evening’s stand out performance was undoubtedly “Walking on Sunshine” choreographed by seniors Faith McCurdy and Natalie Moore, which led by far the loudest cheer done through the joyful and upbeat atmosphere the dance created. 

Behind the scenes, credit is due to the eleven talented student dancers and choreographers: seniors Addison Noll, Kendall Wheeler, Faith McCurdy, Anthony Santana, Natalie Moore, Jake Bledsoe, Vivienne Gerena and juniors Danielle Liberatore, Issay Eyobel, Eugina Acevedo, Monica Perez.  

Dancer freshman Elysa Loner told, “My mentors have been my three choreographers, Vivienne, Issay and Eugina.” 

In addition to the choreographers, dance instructor Ms. Dorony is also held with immense credit for her commitment to the department. 

As the curtains closed, the auditorium illuminated with smiles and laughter, with proud parents and friends expressing their admiration through the traditional gift of flowers.  

Giving everyone high fives and hugging everyone after their dance is always the best memories,” said Sercu.
