The Pasadena High School Orchesis dance team, choreographed by Hillary Temple and Chandler Pope, opened the 41st Annual Pasadena Black History Parade this Saturday to rousing applause.
By Thomas Holmes
Orchesis is composed of Pasadena High School students who have a passion for dance and performance. “Orchesis has helped me become a better person and allows me to express myself through dance,” said senior Ryann Reynoso.
The parade is a staple of Pasadena culture and draws thousands to Fair Oaks Avenue and the Jackie Robinson Community Center to see local schools, cultural groups and celebrities along the one and a half mile parade route.
