On the Move

Taylor Mills speTaylornt her summer at Purchase College SUNY in New York under the late founding director, Mignon Furman.  Her 3 week experience offered the unique opportunity to participate in performance awards,  special instruction in variatio…ns that students performed in front of an audience for awards and medals, which Taylor received a gold medal.   Taylor received a scholarship in 2012 to attend AAB at RDA’s National Festival in Montreal, Canada.  She enjoyed the experience so much she returned again this summer.  “My favorite teacher was Iain Macdonald, director of South African Ballet Theatre.  He gave me great corrections and especially helped me to increase my jumps” says Mills.  “I recommend this program for students taking their first summer dance experience.  It is well chaperoned, has great faculty and keeps students very active.  I look forward to visiting new places through dance next summer.”
Taylor is a freshman at Musselman High School and the daughter of Jeremy and Jenn Mills of Inwood.  Way to go Taylor!
Katie Rose was on the move in New York City this summer studying at the Joffrey Ballet School founded  by the late Robert Joffrey in 1953.  While attending the Summer Intensive  Katie was exposed to New York’s unparalleled dance community. … ” My favorite teachers were Brian Mc Sween and Francesca Corkle” says Rose.  “They would stay after class to give you help when needed.  Individual training is sometimes difficult in a large summer school environment but the Joffrey Ballet was different.  I would definitely recommend this program and would love to return next year.” Katie is the daughter of Larry and Laura Faircloth of Martinsburg.  She is a Junior at Martinsburg High School and is the reigning Miss Jefferson County Outstanding Teen.  Way to go Katie!
