This past June, Ivy He and Doreen Cai represented the Awty Dance Ensemble at the Starquest International World Finals Dance Competition. Ivy competed individually in the advanced teen solo division and both girls competed together in the duet/trio division. These dancers won several awards, including Best Costume (in both solo and duet competition), the Pretty Picture Award (duet competition), and the Technical Spectacle Award (solo competition). Both entries received top scores, ranking them at the Platinum level.
Ivy received 10th place overall in her solo division (a true accomplishment in that field).
Of very special note, Ivy and Doreen placed 2nd overall in their duet division! Their trophy is now on display in the Fine Arts trophy case (on the second floor in the Levant Foundation Building). Please stop by and take a look if you are in the area and be sure to congratulate both of these talented dancers on a job well done!
