“Lost in the Night” — choreographed by junior Ashlee Brannen
January 5, 2023
This dance opens the night for Dance 3 with an air of mystique. Backed by Disney Aladdin’s “Arabian Night” and a vibrant blue glow, the dancers appear in stunning scarlet dresses. Throughout the performance, they continually reach towards something unknown, something the audience must fill with their imaginations. There’s a feeling of tension, a want to know more, that left me on the edge of my seat. And eventually, my breath was taken away when they formed a center block with levels and dimension, reaching towards the audience now as if they were drawing us in.
