FPCHS Dancers Earn Superior Ratings
The Flagler-Palm Coast High School Dance Company was invited to attend the Volusia County Dance Performance Assessment (VCDPA) on February 17.
The VCDPA gives local students the opportunity to take master classes with guest dance professionals, perform in an adjudicated concert, and compete for "All County" Dance Ensemble status.
FPCHS dancers earned Superior ratings performing in This Joint in Jumpin'—a swing dance performed to tunes from the Harlem Renaissance. The piece was performed at News-Journal Center in Daytona Beach, in a concert open to the public.
The following dancers proudly represented Flagler-Palm Coast High School and earned Superior ratings: Ava Andrews, Hunter Baker, Zionni Butler, Alexis Cruz, Elizaveta Guseva, Davon Gwyn, Malina Hreib, Victoria Jones, Brooklynn Lapointe, Maya Laster, Markylah McKinney, Matilda Noble, Cristina Pruna, and Mary Wilcox.
A group of "All County" elite dancers was also selected by judges based on technique and performance quality. This group included: Ava Andrews, Zionni Butler, Elizaveta Guseva, and Davon Gwyn.
The FPCHS Dance Company is directed by Flagler-Palm Coast High School instructor, Janice Monsanto.
