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." RE Dance Team
