NU Dance Presents Student Choreography Showcase

“Making Connections” is the theme of this years Nevada Union High School Theatrical Dance Program Student Choreography Showcase .
The student choreographers submitted detailed proposals at the start of the school year, describing how their dance would reflect the show’s theme of making connections between dance and another subject. They began rehearsals at the start of the school year, dedicating several weekends to teach and stage their works on a cast of their peers. Choreographer Michaela Martinez says her dance is about government surveillance and how people behave when they are being watched. She says she got the idea from one of her other classes.

Some of the students also study with other dance troupes like Dawson Dance which came to Nevada County last year…Michaela Martinez and Madee Wilkerson are both seniors in the NU dance program.
