“K-Pop Club is doing the Chinese New Year Festival for the experience,” senior Yen Binh Tran said. “It’s another opportunity for the club to be on stage. [I want the members] to understand the feeling of performing to a larger audience.”
Previously, the performers were only supposed to prepare for Las Vegas Dance Marathon. However, since the festival has been added to their agenda, the club is now practicing for two performances simultaneously.
“These two performances are going to be stressful, but great opportunities,” senior Anna Liang said. “Time is quite limited as we learn, clean and perfect the performances. However, [the festival and Dance Marathon] allow members to experience performing in front of larger crowds.”
“Practice time has been a problem because we’re currently down to only one adviser and a lot of our members have volunteering, work and other clubs to attend to, so scheduling days when everyone is available is an issue,” Tran said. “We are looking for another teacher so we can have more practice days.”
Until another teacher can co-advise the club, dance practices will be held every Thursday from 1:45-3 p.m. After the Chinese New Year performance, K-Pop Club will continue practicing for Las Vegas Dance Marathon.
“I’m really excited for our upcoming performances because I believe we’ll show our best sides at the festival and Dance Marathon,” sophomore Eman Yonis said. “I’m a bit nervous about the time restraint, but I [have no doubt that] we’ll be happy with all of our performances.”
