Established during the 1971-72 school year, Contemporaires is Danville High School's original show choir. Originally a mixed (male/female) choir, Contemporaires was converted to an all-women's ensemble in the 2000-2001 school year. Today, Contemporaires is comprised of 48 young women in grades 9-12. These talented young women make an annual commitment to attend regularly scheduled after school and daily rehearsals, The group learns a high energy and vocally challenging competition show in the fall to perform for competitions across the Midwest in the Winter and Spring. The group performs regularly in the community and other competitive performance venues.
