AHHS Dance to Host Concert, Senior Recruitment and Spotlight This November

Arlington Heights High School dancers are preparing for two exciting events this November. 

The AHHS Repertory Dance Concert, the season opener, is November 2 and 3 at the W.E. Scott Theatre at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy St.

Next week is the third annual AHHS Senior Recruitment and Spotlight, November 12 and 13.  The department is hosting 12 Texas colleges and universities for the two-day event which includes master classes with college recruiters, a senior spotlight performance, auditions and a college fair.

Rehearsals for this week’s concert started in August. Dancers are performing choreography from dance faculty members at Texas Christian University, the Houston School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts. AHHS Repertory Dance is Fort Worth ISD’s first pre-professional dance company, according to department officials.

The AHHS Senior Recruitment and Spotlight is one of the department’s biggest annual events and will include 130 students. Dancers will audition for multiple dance companies in one place for the chance at becoming accepted into college. Senior solos and AHHS Repertory Dance will take center stage at the Senior Spotlight performance at 7 p.m. Monday, November 12 at the AHHS auditorium, 4501 W. Freeway in Fort Worth.

“The AHS Dance Department believes in the power of movement to create change in the lives of young people. This event is a prime example of that,” said Rachel Wade, dance department director.  “We are grateful that, with the support of our administration, we are able to use this event as a way to prepare our students for college and career. It’s never too early for students to start having those conversations.”
