Dancers take audience back in time

Ransom Everglades student-dancers danced through the decades during the REwind: All-School Dance Showcase on Jan. 27, donning period-appropriate costumes and performing to some of the most famous dance tunes of the last 65 years. Photo Gallery
Under the direction of dance teacher Desiree Masucci, students from RE's upper school dance team and in the middle school dance program danced to popular pieces as recent as the 2010s and as far back as Elvis' "Jailhouse Rock" from 1957. Ella Lombardo '24, Lauren Scott '24, Lena Zide '23, Lexi Barna '25 and Ella Adler '27 performed solos. Eighth graders danced to songs from the 2000s and 2010s; seventh graders from the 1980s and before; and sixth graders from the 1990s.

"I like to think that my students and I loved the idea of a decades show because we all love to fondly remember our childhoods, and we all have a soft spot in our hearts for nostalgia," Masucci said. "We, as human beings, connect this way."

Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
