The YMCA School of Dance sent 17 dancers and 1 teacher to the Spring conference of the East Coast Committee of the Cecchetti council of America (ECC/CCA) this past weekend. This conference provides our students and teachers an opportunity to work with instructors from all over the country to strengthen their dance technique.
As a part of the conference, students and teachers are offered an opportunity to audition for potential scholarships for future Cecchetti conferences and/or the Cecchetti International Summer Intensive.
The YMCA School of Dance is proud to announce that our very own Brianna Santiago was a winner! Brianna received a scholarship to an East Coast Cecchetti conference as well as a scholarship towards the International Summer Intensive in Michigan this summer. Brianna is an 8th grader at West Frederick Middle School and has been dancing at the YMCA since she was 9 years old.
