Dance! Dance! Dance!

In just a few days school will be out for summer vacation. Some of our students are only leaving us briefly, and others for good as they go on to the next adventure. Our CFA dance students will be busy this summer attending dance programs or preparing to go on to a higher level in Dance. Did you know that the Virginia Governor’s School for the Arts only accepts 2 dance students in our entire region to participate in a prestigious dance program for the Summer? For the last 4 years, those 2 students have been chosen from our very own CFA Dance Program. Pretty Impressive stats. In addition, 14 of our students auditioned for the coveted spots in the American Dance Festival’s Summer Program at Duke University, Bates Young Dancers Workshop, and the Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive as well as one student who applied for a “Leadership in the Arts” program sponsored by the Kennedy Center . ALLĀ were accepted into their respective programs, some even on scholarship. Our Dance program is alive and well and thriving! Way to go! You do us proud!
