Prelude is a new dance group created this fall by a group of friends who attended South Forsyth High School together and were a part of the same dance company in high school.

“It was a big part of our lives,” said Gracie Rogers, a sophomore who started the group. “We didn’t want to audition for the other dance companies, so we decided to start our own.”

The group embraces all styles of dance but focuses on tap, jazz and ballet. These are photos from the third practice, and the group is still holding auditions each Monday at 7 p.m. in Tate 311. Prelude plans to perform in the spring.

Kristen Bowman and Stephanie Halmo plan the rest of their first dance during rehearsal on Monday, Sept. 21.
