Something to Feast Your Eyes on
Who doesn’t love entertainment while eating? WCTA’s Dance Company performed their second Cafe Cabaret Lunchtime dance routine on April 4.
Dance Company was broken up into six groups, in which each group made their own choreography by themselves for songs of their choice. The groups were Homegirls, Grr, Choreo Croissants, Low Profile, Prodi-sugoi-zero-company, and Divine Feminine. Dance Company opened the performance with a piece to Calvin Harris’s Slide featuring Frank Ocean and Migos. They closed their performance with the same piece.
Opening the performance was Grr, dancing to Pull and Go Up by K Camp, Beibs in the Trap by Travis Scott, and Goodies by Ciara. “It was really fun to dance to and perform for people during lunch,” says Ritchie Paek, sophomore, one of the members in Grr. “It was a great learning experience for me learning the choreo as well.”
Grr’s performance was mostly based on hip hop and a little bit of acrobatics, as performed by Zoe Tolentino by doing a backflip with the assistance of Arthur Pombuena and Mahisha Sedere.
Following Grr, was Choreo Croissants, including author, Ashton Tanner, sophomore, Ethan Estandian, sophomore, Tiamani Cyr, senior, Emmanuel Aleman, junior, Faith Dillon, freshman, and Alyssa Costa, senior. They danced to Never Be Like you, Smoke and Retribution both by Flume, Maniac by Jhene Aiko, and My X by Rae Sremmurd. “You know it was pretty great, but the best part was when I hit the folk on stage, the crowd went wild,” said Aleman, referring to a dance move he did.
The choreo of Choreo Croissants varied from contemporary with the song “Never Be Like You,” to house with “Smoke and Retribution” to full out hip hop and urban with “My X.”
After Croissants came Low Profile, followed by Prodi-sugoi-zero-company, Home Girls and finally ending with Divine Feminine, with Matthew Gamboa, senior, Jared Viray, senior, Aisa Dimalanta, junior, Antonio Morales, senior, and Quinn Lashua, sophomore. “They saved me for the very end of our performance, I was like, uh, the secret weapon,” says Lashua, “I didn’t start dancing until the second to last songs and I came out of the curtain which I was hiding behind. It was rad.”
Divine Feminine’s style was a mixture of classic hip hop and contemporary, arguably with a twist of jazz in the mix.
Cafe Cabaret was not to be missed this time around! Luckily for anyone who missed it, there will be more in the following years’ lunches for you to really feast your eyes on.
