It’s the holiday season and St. John Fisher students kicked it off with Fisher Dance’s free winter recital and vocal performances on Dec. 1 in Cleary Auditorium.
Jazz, hip hop, lyrical, tap and a solo dance was performed by Fisher Dance members at its first performance. In between each dance, Fisher’s vocal group Drastic Measure, previously Measure 13, performed holiday tunes.
The Dance Club rehearsed three nights a week for an hour and a half for the duration of the fall semester, to prepare for this event.
Theresa Clark president of the Dance Club and member since freshman year said that it’s very manageable to keep up with rehearsal and her school work. Clark said it “helps with my school work because it gives me time lines and a strict schedule.”
In attendance was freshman nursing major Victoria Price. Price attended this event to support her best friend who was one of the dancers. Price said that she enjoyed each of the dance and vocal performances.
Kate Schwartz is a member of the club and performed in two of the dances, jazz and hip hop. As a freshman, Schwartz first heard about the dance club when she initially toured Fisher and asked her student tour guide about dance opportunities on campus and also through Fisher emails. Schwartz also enjoys practicing nightly with the dance club.
The dance club has informational meetings at the beginning of each semester and anyone looking to join can email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org. The club is also present at involvement fest in the fall and spring.
