Better When I’m Dancing: APA’s Draper 2 Spring Ballroom Dance Extravaganza
The D2 Drama Team took Third Place in the UHSAA Regional Theatre Competition on Tuesday!
In addition to winning 3rd place Sweepstakes, the team also earned the following:
* Celeste Hompstead won Best Supporting Actress in a One-Act Play
* 9 students earned straight Superior ratings in their performances (Madison Hollingsworth, Joel LaCombe, Kayla Peterson, Zandy Miner, Dayton Trafelet, Clayton Johnson, Trent Sims, Ellie Thacker, Hailey Jones)
* 14 APA performances ranked high enough to advance to the State competition in April
Students–come explore ballroom dance! We’ll jive to the Swing, we’ll sway to the Waltz, we’ll jam to the ChaCha! And, we’ll show off your hard work as guest performers in the Ballroom Dance Company’s end-of-year concert. Parents–help your student develop coordination and rhythm, while also learning respect for others, focus, teamwork, and social confidence.
The clinic will run for 7 weeks: Thursdays 2:45-3:30 pm in the D2 gym, from March 23rd to May 11th, with performances on May 12th/13th. The $60 clinic fee includes 7 lessons and the costume rental for the shows. The instructor is Joy Price, our ballroom company coach who comes to us from BYU-Idaho where she was a professor in the dance department. This is a great opportunity for our students! Please see the flyer for more registration details.
