Juniors excited for Quad Day performance

After a successful sophomore Quad Day last fall, the class of 2016 plans to repeat the feat in this year’s performance on Oct. 23. Their skits and dances will all be centered around the theme of Nickelodeon shows and movies.

The juniors are planning six dances: two girls’ dances, a boys’ dance, a partner dance, an all-boys Bollywood dance and the finale, all woven into the skit based on the theme given to the grade. Junior class president Darby Williams is  most to the positive collaboration the class will have during the process.

“The whole point is to just come together as one class to produce a Quad Day that we can feel very proud of,” Williams said. “We have to focus on our task at hand rather than compare with other classes if we want to be successful this year.”

Choreographers such as Sonia Harris are also excited to showcase their own productions.

“I love choreographing dances because it gives me an opportunity to get to know the rest of my classmates,” Harris said. “Our dances are smaller but more fun and our choreography is harder but more interesting. However, our main goal is still to get as much people as we can involved.”

Among other dances, the junior Quad Day will include the third class performance of an all-guys Bollywood dance.

Besides the dances, skits provide an avenue for participation because there are, several more parts available than previous years. Junior Savannah Green, who will be playing Sam Puckett from the Nickelodeon TV series “iCarly,” is participating in a Homecoming skit for the first time.

“Working with such a big cast seems hard, but is something that I’m extremely pumped for,” Green said. “Skit-wise I think we can improve this year by memorizing lines and having more practices before the show.”

Junior Meghan Shah will play the role of Dora from the popular kids show “Dora the Explorer.” She feels lucky that her class got this theme.

“The theme of Nickelodeon has set us up so well because it’s such a broad scope and gives us an opportunity to dig deep and find students of such different personalities to play these characters,” Shah said. “It’s going to be such a pleasure to work with everyone and will be a ton of fun to be in and watch.”

The junior class officers and participants have been hard at work for roughly 16 hours a week recently.

“Under promise, over perform,” junior class vice president Spencer Yen said.
