Set aside those tired clichés about Mennonites and dancing, and enjoy an inspired performance by the dance class at Mennonite Collegiate Institute in Gretna, Man.
To mark the end of the school year, the class released a video of one of its pieces. Set to the song “Lovely” by Billie Eilish and Khalid, the theme of the piece is languishing.
“Our dancers begin and end in the same formation, but in the end, they lift their heads in a posture of openness and hope,” reads a description accompanying the video on YouTube.
Carianne Peters, dance instructor at MCI, and JJ Scherr, a Grade 12 student at the school, choreographed the piece.
