Engstrom is the choreographer for the JDHS production of the rock musical "Pippen," directed by Ryan Conarro. She is teaching students a dance style called Pilobolus, a combination of partnering and balance named after the East Coast dance company that developed the nontraditional style. Bottom, students Evan Thibodeau, on the left, and Wanamaker practice a dance move. "Pippen" will be performed Feb. 24 to 25 and March 3 to 4.
