    Orchesis.

    Post  ChristinaZhou on Wed Nov 11, 2009 6:45 pm

    They’re the highest leapers on campus- literally. The Orchesis Dance Company includes some of Southern California’s most talented hip-hop, jazz and modern dancers.

    Although the junior and senior dance group may be slightly smaller than other performing arts groups, it doesn’t stop the group from performing their very best. “It’s a dance company,” Amy Teng says, “Not a dance class. We don’t learn how to dance, but learn how to perform, how to take care of our bodies.”

    Currently, the dance company is working on their charity show, which will be performed Tuesday, December 17th in the north gym. The amount of money that the charity show pools in will be donated to the Care Organization, and will help feed and eliminate local poverty all over Southern California. As revealed by Tyler Reeves, Orchesis will be performing ‘Merry Happy,’ a quirky, modern routine choreographed by Marissa Tom and Heidy Lam, ‘Wait it Out,’ a strong lyrical routine choreographed by Meghan Lim and Celine Yueh as well as Shake and Pop a sassy, fun Jazz dance choreographed by Katreina Layfield and Kristin Kimura. Orchesis will also be performing Earth Intruders from the homecoming assembly, and a holiday routine that has yet to be announced.

    The ROP class, all songs in the charity show are student-choreographed, and every dancer must audition to be in a song, simulating true-to-life situations as a professional dancer. The class doesn’t focus on techniques, “the class focuses more about the performing arts within dance,” Wendy Wu says. The Orchesis Dance Company is filled with students planning on keeping dancing as a permanent part of their daily life, most of the members having more than eight to nine years of dancing experience.

    The Orchesis Dance Company is a strong group of talented dancers, many taking separate dance classes outside Orchesis. Their Charity show is bound to be fun and exciting, so make sure to reserve the date this December 17th.

    They’re the highest leapers on campus- [double-dash] literally. [Nice intro sentence! I like it, it's an improvement. But it doesn't flow~~~ into the next sentence. Come up with a transition sentence.] The Orchesis Dance Company includes some of Southern California’s most talented hip-hop, jazz and modern dancers.

    Although the junior and senior [specify that you're talking about grades/classes, not levels of talent] dance group may be slightly smaller than other performing arts groups, it doesn’t stop the group from performing their very best [Why would it? And they're bigger than New Spirit......]. “It’s a dance company,” Amy Teng says, “Not a dance class. We don’t learn how to dance, but learn how to perform, how to take care of our bodies.”

    Currently, the dance company is [move currently to here.] working on their charity show, which will be performed [overuse of the verb perform.] Tuesday, December 17th in the north gym [caps both words]. The amount of money that the charity show pools in will be donated to the Care Organization, and will [replace and will with to] help feed and eliminate local poverty all over [replace all over with in] Southern California. As revealed [what's up with the word revealed? (sorry, someone else also used it inappropriately) its not like it was a secret, so dont use such an overly dramatic word in this context....] by Tyler Reeves, Orchesis will be performing ‘Merry Happy,’ a quirky, modern routine choreographed by Marissa Tom and Heidy Lam, [change to semicolon cuz you're listing stuff with lots of commas] ‘Wait it Out,’ a strong [insert comma] lyrical routine choreographed by Meghan Lim and Celine Yueh [insert comma] as well as Shake and Pop [insert quotes and put name of dance in quotes. o and btw, the quotes should be double, not single quotes] a sassy, fun [switch placing of fun and sassy] Jazz [undo caps of jazz] dance choreographed by Katreina Layfield and Kristin Kimura. Orchesis will also be performing Earth Intruders [what happened to the quote marks?] from the homecoming assembly [caps both words], and a [replace a with another] holiday routine that has [replace has with is] yet to be announced.

    The ROP class, what is this random the rop class? it doesn't even make sense-- delete] all songs in the charity show are student-choreographed, and [i dont get the relationship between the two clauses] every dancer must audition [replace must audition with auditions] to be in a song, simulating true-to-life situations as a professional dancer. [it needs to flow~ into the next sentence!]The class doesn’t focus on techniques, [change to semicolon] “the class focuses more about the performing arts within dance,” Wendy Wu says [quotes are in past tense]. The Orchesis Dance Company is filled with [replace filled with with full of] students planning on keeping [replace on keeping with to keep] dancing as a permanent part of their daily life, [insert so] most of the members having [replace having with have] more than eight to nine years [you don't say "more than" and then give a range-- choose one or the other.] of dancing experience.

    The Orchesis Dance Company is a strong group of talented dancers, many taking separate dance classes outside Orchesis [what does this piece of information have to do with anything?. Their Charity show is bound to be fun and exciting, so make sure to reserve the date this December 17th. [this is a really boring conclusion-- try to make it more fun, interesting, vibrant-- play more with the advertisement of the charity show. perhaps quotes about how interesting and exciting it will be? what the dance pieces will be about?]

    [you have a lot of good information, and the wording is okay and stuff, but you gotta make it flow more Smile]

All their hard work accumulates into an annual jaw-dropping event, starring the enthusiastic audience members and performers alike. “It’s a really fun, happy, energetic show,” Amy says, “And I’m sure everyone will enjoy it.” The Charity Show always leaves us in wonder, amazement, and awe at the talent of our AHS dancers. And this year, on the 17th of December, they’ll leave us in awe again with this year’s performance.

    They’re the highest leapers on campus- literally. They jeté, chainé, and pirouette across the dance floor, leaving us speechless, wanting for more. The Orchesis Dance Company includes some of Southern California’s finest, most exuberant and energetic jazz , hip-hop, and modern dancers, all sharing the same love for dance.

    The junior and senior class dance group would never dream of letting their audience down, performing at their very best under any circumstance. “[We’re a] dance company,” junior Amy Teng said, “Not a dance class.

    The dance company is currently working on their Charity Dance Show, which will be premiering Tuesday, Dec. 17 in the North Gym. The amount of money that the Charity Show pools in will be donated to the Care Organization and The Girl Affect Organization. Both organizations supply daily necessities to millions of families in developing countries, improving their lives and their village’s lives. The Girl Affect provides a chance to uneducated girls, giving them a cow, allowing the girl to avoid child marriage, possibly diminish the risk of receiving HIV, and support their family. She could use the milk produced from her cow to feed her family, and any excess milk could be sold in the market. The money could then be used to pay for an school uniform for education, which would fundamentally improve the family’s future. Just by giving a girl a cow, she could help take her family out of the cycle of poverty, and then move on to help her community.

    One of the first dances of the Charity Dance Show will be accompanied by a video about The Girl Affect, so viewers of the show will understand whom their money will be benefitting. Orchesis will be also be performing “Merry Happy,” a quirky, modern routine choreographed by senior Marissa Tom and junior Heidy Lam; “Wait it Out,” a strong, lyrical routine choreographed by returning seniors Meghan Lim and Celine Yue; as well as “Shake and Pop,” a fun, sassy jazz dance choreographed by returning seniors Katreina Layfield and Kristin Kimura. Orchesis will also be performing”Earth Intruders” from the Homecoming Assembly, and another holiday routine that is yet to be announced, junior Tyler Reeves said.

    All songs in the Charity Show are student-choreographed, and each dancer auditions to be in a song, simulating true-to-life situations as a professional dancer. And instead of focusing on techniques like any regular dance class, “[Orchesis] focuses more about the performing arts within dance,” Wendy Wu said. The Orchesis Dance Company is full of students that plan with to keep dancing as a permanent part of their daily life, and most of the members have more than eight years of dancing experience.
