GCAA Dancers accepted to Summer Dance Intensives nationwide!

On January 27th, several of our dance students participated in the 2013 Regional Summer Dance Intensive Auditions at COCA.  Leading dance programs from across the country, including The Ailey School, Joffrey Workshop, and Milwaukee Ballet, participated in this event, searching for dancers to attend their summer programs.

We are so pleased to share the following list of students who have been accepted, their current grade level, and into which program(s) they were accepted.  Additionally, not only were they offered this incredible opportunity, but these dancers accumulated over $8,500 worth of scholarships to their respective programs!!!

We are SO incredibly proud of these dancers for all of their hard work, dedication, and passion.
