The AR Dance team performed their annual dance recital, How the Grinch Stole Christmas this weekMs.Smith and Elizabeth Schwartz, a junior at ARHS, choreographed a wonderful performance filled with multiple dances and occasional humor.

The Grinch was played by none other than Helena Nowelski. She is a senior at Ashley Ridge and has been a part of the AR dance company for many years. Alongside the Grinch was his loyal dog Max. He was played by Junior, Cami Butler. Sweet, Cindy Lou Who was played by Senior, Callie Butler.

There were multiple dances throughout the performance. Many of the songs were directly from the Grinch movie and others were brought from other films, like The Wiz. 

“It was really fun to play Max,” said Cami Butler, “I was able to interact with all the dancers and have a good time.”

Each class began working on their dances for the performance in the fall. Stretching everyday and practicing the dances was extremely important to put on a fabulous show.

We can’t wait to see the next show they have for us in the Spring.
