National High School Dance Festival was a Huge Success
The AHHS Repertory Dance Company had a VERY successful experience at the National High School Dance Festival! We performed two of our pieces for dancers, recruiters and master teachers from across the World and participated in the recruitment audition. Here is what these incredibly talented dancers walked away with.
Greyland Goff- FULL Scholarship to attend Point Park University Summer Dance Scholarship to University of the Arts Pre - College Summer Program Interest from LIU Brooklyn, Montclair State University, James Madison University, SUNY College at Brockport, Seton Hill University, Winthrop University, Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts, and Virginia Commonwealth University

Lily Hendricks, Jada Webb, Jesus Alfaro -ACCEPTANCE (as juniors!) into Winthrop University. Jesus also received a talent based scholarship and will be the FIRST person in his family to attend college! He has been dancing for a year and half.

Elle Quiroga - ACCEPTANCE ( as a junior ) into Winthrop University Dance Program, Seton Hill, James Madison University, American Musical and Dramatic Academy and Winchester University.
All 18 of the dancers that went took at least 3 classes a day and were able to see several performances. Everyone there was so impressed by the diversity of our dancers, their talent, character and integrity. The ones that did not audition were still able to be seen by recruiters when they performed and will be pursuing options for summer study!
Dance is changing these kid's lives and it is incredible to see! Thank you to everyone who has encouraged and supported them this year it has made all the difference to them.
