On Thursday, May 30th, 2019 Stephen A. Halsey JHS 157 hosted its first ever Dance Concert. Students from our 6th grade classes worked hard learning different routines and performed with their classmates.
The show was hosted by 6th grade students Ellie Suzuki and Andre Ellis who did an amazing job. They had some great jokes, great dialogue back and forth between each other, a number of costume changes and even performed as part of the Halsey Dance Company.
The highlight of the night was the debut of the Halsey Dance Company – 20+ students who love dance and put on a performance to end the evening.
Here is their performance:
The Halsey Dance Company will be performing on Friday, May 31st, 2019 at the Queens Borough Wide Arts Festival taking place at Queens College Colden Center located at 65-30 Kissena Blvd, Flushing, NY 11367. The show begins at 6:00 pm.
The Spring Band Concert was tremendous! All 3 grades performed really great. What is so impressive is seeing how far the 8th grade band has come from their 6th grade performance. It is a testament to Mrs. Wolff and the effort she has put in with these young people.
