Aberdeen Dancers Win 5 National Titles

Aberdeen High School's dance team competed in a national championship in March.

When the Aberdeen Dance Company competed at the national level last month, it didn't win a championship.

It won five.

The program competed at the CANAM National Dance Team Championships on March 16 in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The student dancers returned home with national championships in Senior Hip Hop, Senior Jazz, Senior Lyrical, Senior Variety and Senior Open.

Aberdeen took fourth in Senior Pom.

"They also were the highest scoring senior dance team of the entire competition," dance teacher Amy Ferrigno told .

"These students are part of the dance program offered at Aberdeen High School as an art credit toward graduation," Ferrigno said. "This is a class they take within their school schedule which allows them to be involved in other activities. For example, two  of the girls were on the , as well as one of the managers."

These kids are fantasic and have put their hearts and souls into preparing for this competition. They truly deserve the rewards they received! If you have not seen them dance you should attend the Spring Dance Concert on May 17th or 18th at AHS. This team earned a bid also for the U.S. Finals in Virginia Beach and hopefully the Board of Ed. will ALLOW them to go and represent AHS and all of Harford Co. Schools! Congratulations again to some of my favorite kids and an awesome coach!
