Congratulations to Payton DeLuca!
Payton DeLuca (Dance, Grade 12) was awarded a spot to debut her choreography at the National High School Dance Festival 2020 at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA! The performance will take place on 2/29/2020. Out of 222 nationwide entries, only 75 choreography spots were awarded.
