Canyon Crest Academy graduate Lauren Worley, of Black Mountain Dance Centre, will compete with two fellow dancers in the Cechetti International Ballet Competition in Richmond, VA from Aug. 7 through 9. Already experienced, Worley represented Team USA in the same competition in Manchester, England in 2011. “For me, making it into this competition means a test of my self-motivation and work ethic,” Lauren said. “It is also another step closer to my hopes and aspirations.”
This prestigious event will involve pre-professional dancers from the Cecchetti organizations around the world.
