Dance Club Dazzles

Dance Club Dazzles

Chapin’s Upper School Dance Club debuted dazzling shows on March 7, 8 and 9. Led this year by two Class 12 students, Maddie Blanco (President) and Katya Khesin (Vice President), the Club’s  35 members performed 16 student-choreographed pieces including “LA2T D4NCE,” a special number designed and performed by seniors, which closed out the show.

For over 80 years, Dance Club has produced show-stopping productions and the 2024 show was no exception! Encompassing solo, duet and ensemble performances across a range of styles from lyrical, hip hop to tap dancing, the Assembly Room was a vibrant showcase of talent, passion and joy.

“In addition to being our favorite part of high school, Dance Club is emblematic of all of the best parts of our Chapin experience,” Maddie and Katya gushed. “The unique energy, collective support and inspiring talent of the Club has never changed from year to year. We know Dance Club will continue to impact countless students in the years to come, just as it did for the two of us. Dance Club is truly an institution within the institution: former, current and future members alike are united by its magic!”

The seniors emphasized they will absolutely be in the audience for next year’s show and are “grateful to Ms. Sherman for making every Tuesday better.”

We extend a heartfelt thank you to Dance Club Director Sam Sherman ’05 for her leadership, and to Robert Thaxton-Stevenson, Technical Director/Lighting Design and Allyson Ross, Production Assistant/Stage Manager.
