FWISD Dance Students Recruited for College, Summer Programs

Multiple students from Fort Worth ISD’s Arlington Heights High School are on their way to dancing at the collegiate level.

 

The high school recently hosted its second annual senior dance recruitment event. More than a dozen college and university recruiters from across Texas and the nation were on campus to teach students in master dance classes and to recruit students for college and summer dance programs following a mass audition. 

 

“Many of our students do not have the resources to attend college auditions on their own, especially auditions outside of the DFW Metroplex,” said Rachel Wade, dance department director. “Having this event at our school exposes our students to opportunities they would not otherwise have. It is crucial to the success of our students.

 

“We are super proud of our dancers and so excited for the opportunities available to them!”
