Hyline ends year with Zenith

Hyline will perform its annual Zenith show on April 24-26 in the Performing Arts Center.  The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and offers an array of dancing and outside entertainment that will encompass the theme for this year’s performance, “Let the Games Begin.” It will be the first time the New-News will dance as part of Hyline and the last dance for the graduating seniors.

Also incorporated will be the traditional dances choreographed by director Chelsee Cappezuti and assistant director Lindsey Jo, as well as dances created by guest choreographers. The traditional “Daddy-Daughter” dance will also occur, along with Gyline and feature performances by solo acts and the Madrigals.

Freshman Julia Lyssy is thrilled  to dance for the first time with the 2014 New-New class. Twenty-five New-News will dance on all three nights, and Julia has seen prior Zeniths and been inspired by the classes that came before her.

“I’ve spent the last five years watching Zenith and looking up to the girls teaching the clinic and dancing in the dances,” Julia said. “This is my first performance with Hyline and I’m most excited about being on stage with my New-New class. I’ve worked really hard and dreamed of this day for a long time.”

Junior Melissa Cu said she feels the theme is easily relatable.

“I think the theme is really exciting because it helps develop different aspects that people can relate to life,” Melissa said. “In this day and age, a lot of teenagers play video games, and everyone has read ‘The Hunger Games’, so I think it can relate to a lot of people.”

Senior Hyline captain Alayna Garcia is anticipating the last dance for the seniors.

“[The seniors’] whole Hyline experience is coming to a close, and it’s going to be very bittersweet as we dance with our teams for the last time,” Alayna said.

Zenith tickets will become available to the public on April 16 in the Chap Court for $15 per ticket.
