LTHS Eurythmics to dance on national stage

The Lyons Township High School Eurythmic Dance Company has been accepted into the National High School Dance Festival on April 3-6 in Miami. The selection committee watched 183 dance works but accepted only 74. LT was awarded two spots: an excerpt from the book Letter To My Daughter by Maya Angelou and a second dance choreographed by senior Olivia Tatum called Rompiste Mi Corazon: “Tore My Heart” by OONA. Congratulations to all the dancers and Director Terry Wethington, Assistant Director Brittany Knicklebein, as well as teachers Brittany Sidoti and Anna Meyers-Caccitolo. 

The festival will include a full day of auditions where students will vie for summer/college scholarships. A variety of classes and workshops in technique, improvisation, yoga, pilates, and more will enrich students' knowledge of dance. Dancers will have the opportunity to perform and dance with professional dancers and choreographers from across the nation.
