Dance Performing Arts · MVHS Orchesis Dance Company wins an “Excellent” rating at the 2021 Utah High School State Dance Festival

Mountain View’s Orchesis Dance Company recently competed at the Utah High School State Dance Festival. Our two dance company submissions, “When Our Paths Align” and “Find” choreographed by Senior Olivia Holyoak were judged virtually by a panel of adjudicators. Overall our company was rated “EXCELLENT”–the second to highest rating given at this competition. We are so honored to have achieved this recognition.


Orchesis joined Orem Dance Company this past weekend for the Virtual Awards Ceremony and Master Classes taught by Travis Lake and Bashaun Williams. Madison McClellan was awarded Outstanding Senior of the Year for her hard work and dedication as acting president on Orchesis.


In some inspirational words from Houston based choreographer, composer and Utah native, Travis Lake, he shared some words for all high school seniors out there getting ready to face the future ahead of them. “You will end up where you’re supposed to be.” Mountain View Bruins, we want you to know the same!
