    Saturday, September 5th: to both a live and TV audience, Arcadia High School's own Orchesis Dance Company performed on ETTV's "Top Idol," an Asian talent competition for singing and dancing. The routine they danced was the opening number of the show, and Orchesis was very proudly the single group invited to perform at the event. Orchesis pulled out all stops to open their year with a bang, boasting purple overalls, matching hats, and choreography by Orchesis director Liza Tedford.
    Out of the twenty-five members of Orchesis, only a select nine of the company performed, as decided through auditions. These nine had to devote two weeks of their summer to practice for the September event: four grueling two-hour rehearsals for their single routine. By the time the performance date rolled around, the girls had perfected their routine and so pulled off a brilliant performance on stage. The crowd response was ecstatic.
    Upon interview, Orchesis president Kristin Kimura described the entire experience as "really fun and enjoyable," in unison with the similar responses of her fellow officers. Katreina Layfield, the Orchesis Dance Captain, added that it was "nice getting to know the newer members," some of who joined in that first performance of the year.
    Other Orchesis members participating in the ETTV performance were Sophia Chung, Ashley Kim, Heidy Lam, Meghan Lim, Tiffany Liu, Erin O'Mara, and Wendy Wu.

    After their debut into the world of TV broadcasting last year, Arcadia High School’s own Orchesis Dance Company once again showcased their skills on ETTV. On Saturday, September 5th, Orchesis performed to both a live and TV audience on a show called "Top Idol," an Asian talent competition for singing and dancing. The routine they performed was an opening number of the show, and Orchesis was very proudly the only group invited to perform at the event.
    Out of the twenty-five members of Orchesis, only a select nine of the company performed, as decided through auditions. These nine had to devote two weeks of their summer to practice for the September event: four grueling two-hour rehearsals for their single routine. But Mrs. Tedford describes all those dancers to have been extremely “motivated and excited,” eager to work hard, so that by the time the performance date rolled around, the girls had perfected their routine. Despite the difficulties involving performing on a TV stage, what with the camera crews rolling around and countless markings on stage, the nine Orchesis members performed brilliantly. Orchesis pulled out all the stops, boasting purple overalls, matching hats, and choreography by Orchesis director Liza Tedford. The choreography involved pop elements with a quirky twist, inspired by the program’s nature as well as the dancers themselves. The whole thing was a “really slam, kinda fun deal,” according to Mrs. Tedford, who described the experience as having been “a really chaotic event, but I think because we were focused on being a team…it went really well.” The crowd response was accordingly ecstatic.

    This event is only the start of what seems to be a promising year for Orchesis. Mrs. Tedford describes their enthusiasm to be “bubbling up”; their thirst for dancing to be “inspiring”—so watch out for Orchesis and start getting excited for the upcoming year!

    I didn't change "an" to "the" because it was the opening for the finale of the competition; but it sounded cooler just to leave it as an opening number. However, it'd be incorrect to say "the."

    haha, that's fine, but one point- I noticed that the first part of the sentence ("Undeterred by the hard work, Ms Tedford describes...") may be gramatically wrong. The 'undeterred' part is modifying 'Ms Tedford,' when it should be modifying the dancers, right? Correct me if I'm wrong here rabbit

    Yeah, you're right.
    Perhaps, "Undeterred by the hard work, the girls were "motivated and excited," describes Ms. Tedford, and" and then I want to say "worked hard" but that's a little repetitive, so I'll come up with something else. But is that format better?

    ADDITION:

    Have a passion for dancing? Wish you could join Orchesis? The '09-'10 Orchesis has already been determined, but auditions for the next year will occur in late May/early June for rising juniors and seniors. When the year starts rolling to an end, keep an eye out for those posters advertising auditions!

    Upon interview, Orchesis pesident Kristin Kimura described the entire experience as “really fun and enjoyable,” in unison with the similar responses of her fellow officers. But the opportunity to perform on stage was not the only plus of the event: Katreina Layfield, the Orchesis dance captain, added that it was “nice getting to know the newer members,” some of whom joined in that first performance of the year. Other Orchesis members participating in the ETTV performance were seniors Sophia Chung, Meghan Lim, Tiffany Liu, Ashley Kim and juniors Heidy Lam, Erin O’Mara, and Wendy Wu.
    This event is only the start of what seems to be a promising year for Orchesis. Mrs. Tedford described their enthusiasm to be “bubbling up,” their thirst for dancing to be “inspiring”—so watch out for Orchesis and start getting excited for the upcoming year!
    Have a passion for dancing? Wish you could join Orchesis? The ‘09-’10 Orchesis has already been determined, but auditions for the next year will occur in late May/early June for rising juniors and seniors. When the year starts rolling to an end, keep an eye out for those posters advertising auditions!
