The International Baccalaureate (IB) dance students of NHS performed a student-choreographed piece at the Stage the Change Conference at the Tilles Center on Nov. 2. The piece, entitled “Because of My Addiction”, was choreographed by class of 2018 graduate Julia Polman, who had been inspired to create a duet based on the seriousness of the current opioid crisis. Submitted in May 2018, it was selected earlier this fall to be performed at the conference in front of numerous other theater, film and dance students across Long Island. IB dance teacher Mrs. Kaylie LaLota worked diligently with 16 sophomore, junior, and senior dancers to rehearse, re-stage, and perfect the piece. The performance was moving and well executed, and we are very proud of all who participated!
