Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school, students can hear the infectious beat of music and rhythm coming from the dance room. The MACHS Dance Club meets weekly to create their own routines and practice for performances. Emily Pena, a core member of the Dance Club, has extensive experience as a dancer: “I have been dancing my whole life, since I was a baby,” she said. “Any dance, any song that has a beat, any music that got a beat, I dance to,” she added, but her favorite dance move is “The Monastery.” Although to some people dancing may look easy, it can be complex and challenging. Every move is important in dance, and it’s not as simple as it looks. “I think every move is important because if you don’t do it right you can harm a muscle,” Emily stated.  Although Emily enjoys dancing solo, she mentioned that “ I think [dancing] as a group is better because you feel what others feel and that’s nice.”

Emily’s favorite thing about the club is expressing herself through dancing. “I express myself. I get to show others what I feel,” she explained. Although she loves dancing, it’s just something she does when she can; it’s not really something she would do for a living. “I feel like it’s not really in my future…I have a sister who is a good major in dance, that’s her thing, but not me. I might do that [on] the side.” The Dance Club is open to anyone who would like to join and show their talent.
