Thank you Park Ridge Cultural Arts Council for helping me experience one of the best weeks of summer. The scholarship I received helped me to participate in the Cathy Roe’s Ultimate Dance Nationals competition in Mason, Ohio. I was selected to participate in a national dance company which rehearsed every day for a week and had two performances in the end of the week. During the week each dancer learned two or more dances to perform, which was a challenge but also lots of fun. During this rehearsal time, I became close with many dancers from all across the the country and I also became closer with the girls on my dance team. But I would have to say the best part of the whole experience was competing my self-choreographed solo. I danced the best I ever have, and won first place in my division! Overall it was a great experience that I will remember forever!
Thank you so much!
