Along with choreography, lighting design was entirely student-run. Junior Diane Guo set the lights for senior Catherine Lu’s piece Already Gone, allowing the audience to only see the dancers’ silhouettes at times, creating a dramatic effect.

Student Choreography Showcase returns to in-person format, features original dances

Mia Hirshfeld, Staff Writer January 13, 2022
On Jan. 7, students and parents gathered to watch the annual Student Choreography Showcase. Over the past year, dance students took improv classes and rehearsed for weeks to prepare for the almost entirely student-driven production. 
To give choreographers more time to hone their dances and reduce dancers’ workload at the end of the first semester, STUCHO will take place on Jan. 17 rather than the middle of December. As the performance date approaches, Gidi’s choreographers are scheduling more rehearsals to finalize details.
