Round Rock ISD hosted their annual fall show, Intersection, featuring various dance programs on Oct. 28. To allow more students and family members to attend, the show featured multiple performances throughout the day at the Performing Arts Center (PAC).

Students worked on the dances for approximately a month, planning out costumes and dress rehearsals. After their long preparation, the dancers were able to show the audience what they had worked on.

“It took us a month to learn the dance and at first, it was slow, but then it got easier as we went along because it was just more about polishing and memorizing, ” Sophia O’neal ‘20 said. “Dress rehearsal helped with spacing because we didn’t know what the spacing on the stage was going to be like, so [in dress rehearsal] we got to figure that out before we got on the stage.”

Each dance class performed dances to different kinds of music and style, including Tight Rope performed by Dance I, Believer performed by Advanced Dance I and Dance II through IV, Show me Love performed by Jazz I, Grown Woman performed by Jazz II, Dust performed by Jazz III, Dazzle performed by Jazz IV, The Tales of Hoffman performed by Ballet I and II, Compte performed by Ballet III and IV.

“I’m in Ballet I/II and I chose to take the class because I’ve been doing ballet for some time so I thought I could continue it,” Sahanna Thangadurai  ‘21 said. “[Intersection] was a really pleasant experience. We didn’t mess up so we all felt happy.”

Since the Intersection tickets were free, people were able to attend the event at one of the many showtimes, 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., without having to buy tickets. For family and friends who weren’t able to attend the performance or wanted a recording of the show, DVDs of the performances were sold.

“My parents and my friends came which made me kinda nervous because they were watching me,” Haeun Kim’ 20 said. “However, it was still fun to show them the dance I’ve been working on for months.”

The next large dance performance at the PAC will be the spring show, Escapade, where all the dance classes including SunDancers, cheerleaders and Warrior Pride will showcase their talents. Escapade is set to take place on April 6-7.
