Spring Arts Festival – Dance Classes

On April 24th, 2017 the Jr. High and High School dance classes kicked off the Spring Arts Festival and presented Playlist: Hits  from Yesterday and Today. Everybody Dance Now, Get Up, Pon de Replay and Who’s that Chick were numbers performed by the jr. high students. The high school performed group routines to Crazy in Love, Motown Philly, Black Beatles, Poison, Cold Hearted Snake and Work. In addition to performing group dance students presented their own choreography to songs like, Get Ur Freak On, My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark, Hips Don’t Lie, Bang, Bang, Talk, Wall to Wall, Gold Digger and Body Movin. “I am very proud of all of the students who performed tonight, they did a great job,” said Miss Cara.

Competition Percussion at Desert Ridge

On Saturday, April 1st, the North Pointe Indoor Percussion traveled to Desert Ridge High School, to perform their show “The Crooked Man”, in the WGAZ Percussion Championships competition. This was the last competition of the season for the group to perform and the students were ready to put forth 100% of their effort and drive as this was the last time they would debut their show to audiences and judges. Of the 12 groups we competed against in our division, the North Pointe Competition Percussion team secured 5th place. Seniors Brandon Fenton and Joseph Perez said “this was our best show yet, and we are happy with the work everyone put in to achieve a successful show this season.”

Directors Justin Kline and Luis Fisher were very impressed with the group’s final performance. “We are so proud of the growth that every student has shown throughout the season, and look forward to what North Pointe has in store for next year.”

Competition Percussion at San Bernardino, CA

On Saturday, March 25th, the North Pointe Indoor Percussion traveled to San Bernardino, California to debut their show “The Crooked Man”, in the WGI Power Western competition. This was the second time that the group traveled to California to compete and perform their show against 22 other groups in our division. Of the many shows and groups that competed, none barred any resemblance to “The Crooked Man” which tells the dark story of an innocent young girl who is corrupted by an evil spirit who eventually takes her soul.  Jesse Ponce and Elizabeth Aguirre are featured as the Crooked Man and the young girl, respectively.  Although we were placed at 16th for our division, the students used this experience as a motivation to continue to put forth 100% effort as we steer towards our championships performance next weekend.

Directors Justin Kline and Luis Fisher were very impressed with the group’s performance. “We made it to California and we showed the world what we have, now let’s show Arizona what we can do!”

Addams Family
The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednsday’s ‘normal’ boyfrend and his parents.
