RPBHS Dancers Shine At Midterm Show

On Thursday, Dec. 12, the Royal Palm Beach High School Dancers and the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team, under the direction of Michele Blecher, performed their annual midterm show, “Green Light.”

The 125 dancers performed 24 routines in a variety of styles, including jazz, lyrical, contemporary, musical theater, hip-hop and praise.

There were many highlights, beginning with the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team performing the opening routine “Green Light”, which was followed by “Don’t Turn Your Back on Me,” a contemporary duet performed by Bianca Labady and Bryce Blecher.

The fourth-period RPBHS Dancers performed “When I was Your Man.” The fifth-period dancers took the floor for “It’s Not Over.” The sixth-period dancers performed a jazz/ethnic dance with a Middle Eastern flair in “Stereo Love” using swords and scarves. The seventh-period dancers did a quick-time rendition of “Stars.”

Andres Cazares did the only solo of the night with a lyrical/hip-hop “Blue Ocean Floor.”

The Wildcat Dancers Dance Team also performed “Never Again,” based on the genocide during World War II, and “I’ll Make a Man Outta You.”

All 125 dancers perform together in the grand finale, “Let’s Just Dance.”

The team had the help of dance team parents Matt Lutz, Adam Causey, Phyllis and William Blackmon and Carey Blecher, who built sets and props.
