FUHS Dance Production and Advanced Dance will be performing their annual winter concert, the Four Seasons, tonight and Dec. 1.
Junior Morgan Forrester, a co-captain for the dance team, explains the audition process for the show.
“Each semester we hold auditions for dances choreographed by students [in the dance program] to be put into our shows,” Forrester said. “Everything that you will see in the show was choreographed by a student.”
The dance program has been preparing for this concert since the second week of school and has put in a lot of preparation other than just choreography.
“Getting props and costumes ready on time is a lot of pressure,” Forrester said. “There is so much going into the show that people don’t realize.”
Junior Annakate McIntosh believes that the show will be worth watching, considering how their practices finish at 9 p.m.
“We have been preparing for a long time because the Winter and Spring shows are our two big shows and we need to make sure to rock it,” McIntosh said.
A new theme is chosen every year, with this year’s being the Four Seasons.
Co-Captains Forrester, junior Lexi Ari, and their dance teacher, Lauren McNair, choose which dances should be included in the concert.
Ari is eager to showcase their dancers’ hard work and passion.
“I’m excited for everyone to see the hard work that we’ve put in; this is going to be a really great show. I think a lot of thought was put into each of the dances,” Ari said. “It’s just exciting to share our passion with everyone else.”
Sophomore Taylor White is excited for her first concert as part of the Dance Production team.
“I think the thing I’m most excited for is working together with all these great dancers,” White said.
Senior Cobe Romero looks forward to taking everything he’s learned from the Fullerton dance program into further years.
“To certain people it’s just a dance class at school, but to me it’s been a really big part of my life,” Romero said. “This program helped me figure out who I am and has helped me grow as a person.”
The Four Seasons dance concert will be held tonight and Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. in the Plummer auditorium, where tickets will be sold at the door for $12.
