Watkinson juniors Maizy S. and Millie F. will be traveling to Zagreb, Croatia to compete at the World Tap Dance Championships on November 21 – 26th as members of the USA Tap Team! The highly selective team consists of only 69 dancers from the tri-state area who will represent the United States at this prestigious event. The dancers were chosen by a panel of judges certified by the International Dance Organization. Being selected for this team is a tremendous honor in and of itself as each nation is limited to 3 entries per category. Both girls study dance at Farmington Valley Dance & Music in Farmington, CT.
Both girls are enrolled in Watkinson’s Global Studies diploma program, which requires completing a rigorous set of academic requirements above and beyond those of a traditional high school diploma. Upon completion, students earn a second diploma. Watkinson’s Global Studies Program is a unique aspect of our private school curriculum.
