Wellington Landings Hosts Amazing Spring Dance Performance ‘To This Day’

Wellington Landings Middle School dancers perform during their spring dance performance March 6.

A total of 150 dance students from Wellington Landings Middle School performed in their spring dance program “To This Day” on Wednesday, March 6. The dance students delivered a powerful, poignant performance. The concert was overflowing with jazz, contemporary and hip-hop styles.

The students performed to a variety of music, including Christina Aguilera, Michael Buble, Ciara, Gotye and Meghan Trainor. The beginning and intermediate classes performed their class group dances with true gusto and beauty. Eight student choreographers were chosen to choreograph four of the advanced class group dances. The dances were filled with beautiful phrasing, intricate choreography and exquisite lines.

The beginning dance class did an impressive job learning two challenging new dances in a short amount of time. In one dance, they dressed like the characters in the Broadway musical Matilda while dancing to “Mean Girls,” a song with an anti-bullying theme.

Dance teacher Dana Brett is incredibly proud of all of her dancers. Not only did the students dance beautifully, but the level of cooperation, collaboration and kindness among the dancers was extraordinary.

Wellington Landings is home to a fine arts academy, which includes an extensive dance program.
