We are so proud to announce that two of our wonderful seniors - Lauren Ross (Woods Cross High School) and Danielle Dreis (Ogden High School) - have been named Sterling Scholar in Dance for their high schools! Lauren is a member of our Touring Company and Danielle is a part of our Advanced Ballet Company. Sterling Scholars in Dance not only excel in the studio, they also have to excel as students in the classroom and be active in serving their community. We are so proud of Lauren and Danielle for achieving this great honor and for the incredible example they are to all of our dancers at CAA! Congratulations!!!!
Our Performing and Premiere Companies were in action the same weekend this month, putting in incredible performances in two different competitions. Performing Company took home top awards in their divisions at Gotta Move! Our Premiere Companies took several overall awards at Releve in St. George and won the Overall Studio award for earning the highest points of any studio in the competition! Our dancers always represent the studio and themselves so beautifully throughout the state and we couldn't be prouder of all of them! Congratulations to our Premiere and Performing Company dancers and their amazing directors! We are so excited to have so many programs that are doing so many amazing things!
