The show, which has been in rehearsals since October, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Cornog Auditorium at New Trier's Northfield Campus, 7 Happ Road. Tickets are $5 and New Trier students are free with a student ID.

"The show follows the same format each year, but what we love about it is that it's the only dance experience offered to all four years and any level dancer," Northfield Dance Ensemble sponsor Lucy Riner said. "It's a unique opportunity to meet dancers on each campus and work with students who have a variety of different levels of dance experience."

Dances will be performed to a variety to different genres of music, ranging from hip-hop and pop to folk and alternative.

Featured choreographers include: Brenda Sifuentes, Hadley Bushonville, Hannah Levine-Drizin, Sydney Koeplin and Kayla Kajita. All the choreographers are seniors and Northfield Dance Ensemble leaders.
