In addition to the individual honors, Annapolis High School earned the prestigious Performance and Professionalism Award. The award is one of two given each year to schools that are observed during master classes and tech rehearsal and cited as being the most professional in dress, behavior, attitude toward other dancers, cohesiveness of their Dance Company, and performance qualities.

“I am just so proud of the effort our dancers and dance company directors put into being the best they can possibly be,” said Nicole Deming, AACPS’ Dance Teacher Specialist, who oversees the county’s dance program. “We have a legacy of excellence when it comes to dance in Anne Arundel County and our dancers upheld that legacy impeccably once again.”
