It is with great pleasure and joy that we announce the accomplishments of The Link School of the Arts dancers who performed at the Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP) this past weekend in Chicago. The dancers placed in the top 12 Ensembles for their presentation of “Shubert For Six”, a classical variation choreographed by Ms. Shawn Stevens, former New York City Ballet and Twyla Tharpe dancer.
Congratulations also to Deborah Roper who placed in the top 12 for contemporary dance performing “Refining Fire”, choreographer, Theara J. Ward, former Dance Theatre Harlem Soloist and “Cats” performer.
Also, placing in the top 12, Deanna Davenport, for her performance of “Sojourner’s Truth: A Cry Of The Heart”, also choreographed by Theara Ward. Both students represented The Link School Of The Arts in the senior and junior divisions of dance and Shubert For Six was performed by all six dancers en pointe for ensemble work. Please join us in congratulating these wonderful students for their outstanding achievements in dance for the Glory of God!
