Students and families enjoy a night of holiday music and dance.


Monta Vista’s award-winning dance team, the Marquesas, held its annual winter showcase on Dec. 1. The program — featuring solo dances by the dance team officers — was the Marquesas’ main fundraising event for the year. The team included a variety of dance styles in their routines ranging from lyrical dances to hip-hop.In addition to the outstanding performances by the Marquesas, the audience greeted the other performers (senior Cathy Ang, junior Colin Kim, Tensync, MV Bhangra and Reckless Dance Crew) with as much enthusiasm. The school mascots, Monty the Matador and El Toro, made a special guest appearance during the show, facing off in an enthusiastic dance battle.
