    Every dance this past weekend on the mainstage of the Rep was wonderful, if not magical. I especially loved this performance by DJ Duncan and Cheyenne Phillips. All of the dance numbers’ choreography,the costumes, and most of all the talent of all of the students, made this year’s annual dance ensemble particularly spectacular. I look forward to this every spring and 2015 was one of the best.
