AHA Dancers Achieve National Recognition
The Academy of the Holy Angels Varsity and Junior Varsity Dance Teams achieved national rankings at the 2015 National Dance Team Championship competition held from January 30-February 1st at the Walt Disney World Resort® in Orlando, Florida. Competing against 54 teams from all over the country, the Varsity Angels achieved a second place ranking while the Junior Varsity Team came in fifth place. AHA Dance Coach Jenny Sweet was thrilled with her teams’ results. “For AHA to achieve such success in a program that began only four years ago is simply amazing.” Varsity Co-Captain A’Adil Ali-Jenkins echoed her coach’s excitement and attributed the team’s accomplishments to her. “We owe all of our success to our coach Jenny Sweet. She is motivating, knowledgeable and sacrifices so much for the team. Being on the Academy of the Holy Angels Dance Team over the past four years has been the most rewarding experience in my life. I was able to fully understand what it means to bond with a group of girls who all have the same goal as I do: striving for excellence.” The national championship is administered by Universal Dance Association, a division of Varsity Brands, Inc. The NDTC is the only national-level dance team championship that is endorsed by the National Federation of State High School Associations, the national service and administrative organization for high school athletics and fine arts programs in speech, debate, theater, and music.
