This was the first time the Company has performed their new pieces on stage this season and what a success it was! We are so proud of the way the dancers represented the studio by showing their technique, artistry, and good sportsmanship...and the judges agreed by awarding NHPA II the "Studio Spirit Award" for the weekend! Congratulations to all, and now back to work for our next performance in April!
