Guest Choreographer teaches Orchesis Dancers

Currently, RB's Orchesis dancers are working with a professional dancer and choreographer. Mr. Santo Scavuzzo has performed for numerous dance companies and events including: Dance for Life, Same Planet Different World, Rodriquez Dance Theatre, and LehrerDance. In addition, Mr. Scavuzzo received his MFA in dance from the University of Iowa. RB dancers work hard learning new movements such as sudden knee drops, body layouts and quirky foot work. This dance, performed to Prince's Baby, I am a Star, will be performed as the opener to this year's Orchesis show on April 27th and April 28th. We hope you can make it.

RBHS Dancers Qualify for State

Congratulations to the RBHS dancers for qualifying for state. The selected dance was choreographed by senior, Rachel Ackerman. It is a trio danced by senior dancer Jamie Payne, and junior dancers Alaina Sliz and Sarah Benya. The dance is titled "Keep me Quiet." Rachel was inspired by her having a secret. She says, "the dance is about having a really good secret and having to stay quiet- you can't tell anyone." The dance was proposed and choreographed as a part of Rachel's first semester final exam. The dance will be performed as a part of the student showcase on Saturday, May 19th at the Illinois H.S. State Dance Festival. Buffalo Grove H.S. will be hosting this year's festival.
