Senior Mackenzie Greene has been a part of Orchesis for four years.  however she’s been the star of the show since she was three years old. Also a member of choir, Ladies’ First, Children’s Theater, and a participant in many of the schools plays its hard not to find this girl on stage.

Greene had looked forward to joining Orchesis before high school.

“I started doing the Huskie dance workshop in middle school and watching the team made me realize it was something I wanted to work towards being on in high school,” Greene said

Greene has learned a lot these last few years.

“The group has taught me a lot about being confident in myself as a performer and as a dancer. Before Orchesis I had always been on sports teams of like 12 people but joining a dance team of 30 and learning to all work together onstage was all new to me,” Greene said.

In addition to opportunities to learn, being on Orchesis has given Green many incredible experiences. The company has not only given the members the chance to choreograph their own dances but also have several guest artists come in as well as attending master classes. On March 21 the company will travel to the United Center and perform a 10 piece as part of the pre-game,

Although Greene is planning on going down a scientific path in the future, hopefully landing in the field of animal or medical research it’s still important to her that dance is apart of her life.

” I hope to find a way to get involved wherever I end up in classes or even a dance team for fun because it is such a big part of my life and I can’t imagine stopping it [dancing] forever after I graduate,” Greene said.

Greene will be performing in the Orchesis show ‘Synergy’ today and tomorrow at 7 pm.  Tickets are $10 each.
