On Thursday, April 25, the dancers from Royal Palm Beach High School held their final show performance of the year, “Just Dance, Level Up,” in the school’s auditorium.
The show’s theme music was based on all types of games from video, computer and sports. The show was choreographed by master teacher Michele Blecher and was filled with 24 newly choreographed routines, ranging in the style of hip-hop, character, jazz, baton, soft shoe, popping/robot and contemporary.
The show was also a final performance for the dancers who are graduating this year and featured Senior Spotlight, which is where graduating senior dancers perform solos and duets to show the audience what they have learned.
The show’s grand finale had 100-plus dancers on the stage dancing simultaneously to “Pinball Wizard” by the Who. After the finale, each underclassman received a pin from Blecher and multiple items from family and friends. The seniors each received a medal, and the Honor Dance graduating seniors also received their honor cords, along with a heartfelt speech from Blecher. As a twist, several seniors presented Blecher with a speech of their own.
