Filed under: Community,Entertainment |

The Nichols Dance Ensemble will present its annual Choreographer’s Showcase on February 28th from 7:00-8:15pm in the FPAC, admission is free. This year, dance members are working to create dance pieces of all forms/styles. At this time, students are rehearsing in areas all around the middle school, preparing for the big night. A student could be rehearsing with an umbrella in the atrium, while in the main studio students can be found dancing together to a throwback song; “it’s a lindy-hip, so it’s kind of like a fast swing dance” (Ryan DiPaola ’16). From a Chinese dragon dance to contemporary lyrical, Cho Show of 2015 is an event you won’t want to miss.
