More than 100 dancers will take the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium for the high school’s annual performance, and instructor Sarah Nugent says it’s an event that shouldn’t be missed.

“This is the culmination of everything the dance team has been working on all year, what the dance classes have been doing,” she said.

The two-hour show’s theme is “True Colors,” and aside from the song of the same name, dancers will spin, twirl and jive to color-themed songs throughout. Traditional styles like ballet will appear on stage, as will modern hip-hop.

“We try to keep the theme present here and there throughout the entire concert,” Nugent said.

KHS’s dance team has just returned from a national competition, and this weekend’s concert is a gala performance for the squad’s 10 seniors, nine of whom will perform solo acts during the show.

“This is the most number of dancers I’ve ever had in the show,” Nugent said.

Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, $8 for adults, and children younger than 2 are admitted free. All proceeds go to the school’s dance program.

“It’s a chance to see every one of the routines the dance team has done throughout the year,” Nugent said. “It’s a chance for the public to get to see what a tremendous program the Kodiak school district has provided our students.”
