On June 9th, to a packed house, the Torrey Pines Dance Team and Dance PE took to the floor of the school gym to present their annual year-end show.  They did not disappoint! 

Through a mix of dance styles that included hip hop, jazz, lyrical, modern and tap the dancers showcased the artistic talents they spent the year polishing.  The program incorporated pieces choreographed by students, coaches and professionals in the dance community.

Joining the dancers in the evening performance were members of the Torrey Pines Drum Line, Orchestra and Kevin Kirsch.  The Drum Line accompanied the Varsity Dance Team in the opening piece titled "Procession", while the Orchestra beautiful played Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" to a piece perfomed by the JV Dance Team.  Kevin Kirsch amazed the audience by magically making his model airplane dance through the air of the gym.

Expression Session 2012 truly offered something for everyone to enjoy.
