"We have a very talented group of girls this year. Their dedication and hard work has produced a very entertaining show," said Orchesis director Julie Widinski.

Orchesis gives students with a strong desire and talent to dance the opportunity of expressive movement through the art of dance performance. The goal is to educate and strengthen the appreciation of dance as an art form. All the dances are choreographed by high school students and allows them an opportunity to participate in leadership roles.
