Audience members attending this year’s show, “Reflections,” will enjoy excellent performances featuring many styles of dance including modern, lyrical, tap, jazz, and hip hop.

The Huntley High School Orchesis program began in 2008 with the focus of introducing high school students and the community to dance as an art. Orchesis and Junior Orchesis consist of approximately 15 dancers in grades 9-12.
Each year Orchesis auditions two student choreographed dances at the Illinois High School State Dance Festival. In 2010 they were selected to perform among the top 15 dance programs in the state and look forward to participating in the dance festival again this year.
