Dancing American Dreams

January 20th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

The Temple City High School “American Dreams “dance concert on Friday Jan 16 was a hit.  Taking place at a new venue this year, the Rosemead High School Auditorium, the event has historically been at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, but the high of a cost of booking the location demanded a change this year.  dancer
The evening started off with video clips from America’s past, put together by TCHS’s Dragonflicks production team.  TCHS Choreo dance team opened the concert dancing to an Apache Indian themed routine. There were performances from a variety of different Junior Dance teams from grades 3 through 8, and the TCHS Auxiliaries routines throughout the night were spectacular.  Oak Avenue Pom, Auxiliaries & Flags took things back to the 40’s with their military themed routines, while the TCHS dance class students chose a more modern routine, dancing to American Woman & Coming to America.  Additionally, the evening feature performances from both the TCHS Pep Flag & Song Squads.  The Brighterside Singers performed to Shoeless Joe to promote their upcoming musical “Damn Yankees”.  Various small groups seemed to go with the theme of the MTV hit show America’s Best Dance Crew. The solos performed by Ashley Crider & Pamela Chen were angelic.  But the height of the evening was shared by the Choreo team performing a Western Ballet where masked cowgirls had a ballet showdown, until the “sheriff” arrived and roped them all in.  Another show stopper was the self proclaimed Temple City Bad Boys, who performed to Beggin while break dancing.  The Dragonflicks, with minimal technical difficulties, provided the backstage crew, lighting & sound with assistance from some Rosemead High School students.  The evening ended with Choreo’s Captain Pamela Chen & Co-Captain Brittany Cummings thanking everyone for their support, including TCHS Choreo Advisor Marcy Stewart, the choreographers & audience.
