From page A6 | October 25, 2011 |

The Davis High School Jazz Choir and Davis Jazz Choir Inc. would like to thank the many people who helped to make our second annual dance competition, “Everybody Dance Now!” such a wonderful success.

First, we would like to thank student contestants Daniel Dutulescu, Sarah Garrett, Ioana “Jo” Seritan, Bryce Vaewsorn, Devayani Varma, Giavanna Moreno, Leah Benci, Liz Winder, Alex Sprague and Elie Kuppermann; People’s Choice winner Xavier Berkley; and grand prize winner, Ashlyn Savidge; for their enthusiasm in taking the stage. You are all very talented dancers and we loved watching you!

Special thanks to our esteemed judges: Ron Cisneros, Sequence “Kieu (Q)” Grisby and Jean Snyder, for volunteering their time, giving encouraging feedback and making a tough decision.

We would also like to thank the following organizations and individuals for their support of “Everybody Dance Now!”: our entertaining emcees, Dustin Choi, Ali Holder, Alina Lusebrink and Brian Stewart; Watermelon Music for advance ticket sales; our exhibition dancers: the DHS Dance Team, Kieu’s Crew from Fiesta DanceN’ Fitness, and Ryan Uota, winner of 2010 “Blue Devils: You Think You Can Dance?”; and Kathy Peter and our tech crew: Antonio DeLoera-Brust, Kora Feder, Deanna Gee, Sam Ramos and Ellie Suder.

We’d also like to thank Jeff Shaw and Cliff Gamble from Davis Media Access (with a hand from volunteer Bert Craig) for filming; David Lichtenstein at Seat Yourself for setting up online ticket sales; The Davis Enterprise and The HUB for publicity; Nugget Market for its generous donation of dinner for the judges; the many local businesses and dance schools who graciously allowed us window space to publicize the event; DHS Jazz Choir choreographer Cara Rains, for running rehearsals and choreographing a fun and energetic group piece; and our hard-working production team: Ellen Dean, Patti Huston, Michele Long, Carol Stewart and Roseanne Testerman.

Thanks also to all the supportive Jazz Choir parents and students who volunteered in numerous ways to make the entire evening run so smoothly.

“Everybody Dance Now!” was a fundraiser for the Jazz Choir’s trip with the Jazz Band to the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans in April.

On behalf of the Jazz Choir and director Bill Zinn, we look forward to another successful event next year.

Jody Lusebrink and Susan Miller
Everybody Dance Now! coordinators, Davis
