WLMS Dancers Dazzle At Spring Dance

WLMS dancers during their spring performance last month.

Dancers from Wellington Landings Middle School dazzled their audience at a spring dance performance on Wednesday, May 17.

The dancers, from beginners to experienced performers, danced to 17 different numbers, including Taylor Swift’s “Out of the Woods,” Beyoncé’s “All Night” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.”

With dance styles ranging from hip-hop to African dance, and from ballet to tap, and with costumes that were elaborate and stunning, students from every dance class at Wellington Landings performed with amazing skill. Many of the dances were choreographed by the dance students themselves.

The WLMS concert chorus provided accompaniment for some of the dances. The program also included guest performers from Wellington High School, making the performance a true celebration of the arts.

Wellington Landings Middle School opened its Fine Arts Academy this school year, offering dance for the first time. Jane Beck Sussman joined the faculty last August, bringing her years of experience as a performer and as a dance director to the now flourishing WLMS dance program.
