Why Open Call?
I (Jewels Burke) was a part of Open Call in 2015 and 2016 when I was a small middle schooler. Now that I am older, I have had the opportunity to choreograph for my varsity contemporary team and wanted to take my love for dance and put it out for the community to see. The Open Call experience is unlike anything we’ve been a part of. Watching other talented performers and getting to show everyone our passion for dance at the beautiful McCallum Theatre is what makes it such a wholesome experience.
As a high school dance team, we go around competing against other teams who are incredible and extremely talented. These high school dance teams inspire us to work harder, especially because we are a small group that comes from a small dance community. We are inspired by their strength, cooperation and love for the art of dance. It drives us to exceed our limits and make a name for ourselves outside the Coachella Valley.
If everyone moves forward together then success takes care of itself.
Our biggest dream as a group is to be recognized and possibly win a 1st place banner at our final competition, West Coast Elite Dance Experience Nationals.
