Letter: Orchesis performances worth seeing in Sycamore

To the Editor:

On the weekend of March 13-15, I was given the opportunity to attend the Orchesis Dance Troupe’s performance of The Nature of Dance performed at Sycamore High School. Approximately 200 students, ranging from preschool to high school seniors, all took part in this annual production put on by dancers, production crew, and tech staff. 

All 34 dances revolved around nature to some degree and featured such numbers as “Welcome to the Jungle,” “It’s Raining Men,” “A Drop in the Ocean,” and “Thunderstruck” to name a few. The four shows were all well-attended as the Sycamore community continues to come together to support the talent and the work the kids, their sponsors, parents, and Sycamore businesses put into making this event so entertaining and enjoyable for all. 

If you have never been to an Orchesis performance, I would highly encourage you keep it in mind for next year.
