Thank you National Ballet Competition for a beautiful weekend of education, performance and new friends. It was wonderful to be in an environment surrounded by our dance community. While it was competitive, it was also encouraging, respectful and supportive of each and every dancer.
What a great experience for our students! We are proud to say that every MCPA dancer was awarded summer scholarship opportunities by the panel of adjudicators including a very special opportunity for our own Senior MCPA Dancer, Tehya West; Tehya was offered a trainee program scholarship!
