This performance was attended by parents, students, friends, and even teachers. The show consisted of about thirty dances, and songs that are "commonly known" throughout the decades. The dances were broken up through the decades with about three or more dances through each decade from the twenties until now. When transitioning from one decade to another, a short clip of the historical part of the decade and dance moves that were popular during that time would be projected.
Junior, Kajol Sharda, who is captain of the varsity dance team, stated, “I helped the coach choreograph some dances. The amount of time it takes depends on the dance, how long it is, and difficulty. We learned the dance, Dirty Pop, in two days and that’s it. If you want a solo, you audition, and if Mrs. Kaska thinks it's right for the show, she includes it.”
Although the audience wasn't as packed compared to the previous shows, the applause of the audience showed that they enjoyed each and every performance. “The dances were really good. It does correspond to the decades and I could see people were trying really hard. They have a good selection of music,” said one of the audience members Casandra Chamorro, a freshman at CMHS.
Dancing Through the Decades brought out the cultural side of Mesa. The show did not just stick to one dance style, instead it consisted of multiple styles such as swing, pop, and hip-hop. Overall, the performance was a joy to watch and the talented dancers filled the stage with such dedication and passion.
