Lincoln-Way East students gave audience members an up-close look at the artistry of dance Friday, Jan. 24, during an annual show by the school’s Orchesis dance organization.

According to show director Julie Widinski, Orchesis is designed to give students with a strong desire and talent for dancing the opportunity for expressive movement through dance performance. The goal is to educate and strengthen the appreciation of dance as an art form.
