The Davis High School Jazz Choir will host its third annual “Everybody Dance Now!” fundraiser and dance competition at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.

Advance tickets can be purchased at Watermelon Music: $5 students and $8 general. Tickets will also be available at the door for $10. The event will serve to help fund the Jazz Choir’s activities throughout the year, specifically their spring tour.

“This year we’re planning to go to Disneyland to perform and do some of the backstage workshops,” Jazz Choir director William Zinn said. “It’s really fun and educational and gives (the students) a chance to perform in a more professional setting and to actually draw an audience.”

On Saturday, students from the various junior and senior high schools around Davis will dance for the chance to win a grand prize of $150, awarded by a panel of local judges. A $75 “people’s choice” award will also be given to the audience favorite. The event also will feature performances by 2011 winner Ashlyn Savidge, as well as various guest artists from around the area, such as Fiesta Dance, the Folsom-based Core Dance Collective and the DHS Jazz Choir.

“It’s really fun,” DHS senior and Jazz Choir member John Testerman said. “Every single dancer brings something new to the stage that no one has seen before.”

The first half of the show will be devoted to the competition. Competitors will perform individual dance routines before gathering for an ensemble dance directed by Jazz Choir choreographer Cara Rains. The audience will vote for their favorite candidate during intermission. The Jazz Choir will perform a number during the second half, followed by the other acts.

“It’s a real opportunity for high school students and their friends and families to see what they’ve got and to see who’s the best dancer at DHS.” Testerman said.
