Madeline Robertson, a senior, has choreographed a piece in the show and is performing in every portion of the pre-professional dance company’s sixth annual concert. Choreographers from New York and Los Angeles created each segment of the show, done in dance styles such as modern, contemporary and tap.

“It’s just a really awesome feeling when you get to go out on stage and perform, and there’s just nothing else like it,” said Madeline Robertson, 18.

Next year, Madeline Robertson plans to attend Chapman University’s School of Dance. Kevin and Pam Robertson were excited to see their daughters perform in their last show together.

“They work so hard and give up so much to be a part of this company - I’m pretty proud of them,” Pam Robertson said.

Wells also is a senior, and Peyton Robertson is a sophomore.

“I can’t wait for the show and to see the seniors show off their leadership, dance skills and choreography,” Kevin Robertson said.

The show will be 3 and 7 p.m. Saturday at the World Trade Center, 25 SW Salmon St., WTC Two, Portland. Cost to attend is $20 general and $15 per student. To buy advance tickets, visit nwfusion.org.
