Maricopa High School dance students present their spring dance recital May 10-11.
“Choose Your Own Adventure” contains 31 pieces, with 23 of the numbers choreographed by students. Like the children’s book series, dance director Alexandra Biggs has allowed them complete artistic freedom in their choice of songs, costumes and genres.
“It’s been amazing as a director to watch them work and explore their artistic voices,” she said. “They’ve been working so hard, and I am beyond proud of them.”
The student choreographers are mainly members of the school’s Dance Performance Company, with five from Biggs’ Intermediate Dance 2 class.
“We have everything from jazz, contemporary, modern, hip-hop, musical theater and ballet included in this year’s show,” Biggs said. “New to this show are several solo pieces, which are being performed and choreographed by the students. We also have brand new costumes for all of our large class pieces.”
The box office opens at 6 p.m., and showtime is 7 p.m. The shows are often sellouts.
