Our All-Start Tap Team participated in the National Cherry Blossom Festival parade again this year. Over 400 dancers from throughout the country participated, learning a moving routine that delighted the crowd! A great day for DSD in DC!
DSD's seniors had a great trip to NYC. After seeing the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall it was their chance to dance when they got the opportunity to take a class at the Broadway Dance Center. The rest of their time was spent sight-seeing and enjoying great food and other fun experiences like ice skating.
Dawn's School of Dance participated in National Dance Day, an event hosted by the Dizzy Feet Foundation. Students were encouraged to learn a short dance and submit a video to the Dizzy Feet Foundation along with students from across the country. This year it was presented by So You Think You Can Dance all-stars and Mackenzie Ziegler from Dance Moms. Our students met at the studio on July 30 to learn choreography and perform routine. Thanks to everyone who came out and participated. A special thank you to Madison Nguyen for organizing and hosting the event. The video looked great!
Dawn's School of Dance was invited once again to participate in Disney Performing Arts Onstage this June! Senior 1,2, and 3, Ballet and Jazz classes traveled by chartered bus to Florida. Students spent the week visiting Walt Disney World parks. They also had the opportunity to participate in a workshop taught by a professional Disney performer and choreographer. The week ended with students performing at the Waterside Amphitheater at Disney Springs. We are looking forward to our next trip to Disney during the summer of 2018.
Dawn's School of Dance Competition Team dancers who had performed at the Russell Athletic Bowl were asked to dance on television for CBS's Virginia This Morning. The girls were asked to perform two numbers. They chose to showcase the pre-game show dance choreographed by Mandy Moore and a lyrical piece choreographed by our own Miss Tiffany Allen.
Eight members of the Senior Competition Team and Student Dance Company performed at the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando Florida. Students traveled by van to Florida on December 26, 2015. They spent the week rehearsing with famed choreographer Mandy Moore, best known for her work on Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. They also participated in dance workshops, and had the opportunity to spend two days at Universal Studios. The girls took the field with 220 dancers in front of 40,000 people to preform a pre-game routine with quest artists Nico and Vinz. They also performed in the half-time show with an 800 member marching band. Our dancers represented themselves, their parents, King William County and Dawn's School of the Dance wonderfully. We are very proud of these girls and all they have accomplished.
Dance for the love of dance. We like to travel and enjoy every step!
