NYCDA Competition Results

Fitzsimmons Dance Factory has attended the New York City Dance Alliance for several years. It is one of our most exciting competitions as the dancers get to take classes from well-renowned choreographers and dancers, and then have them as their judges in the evening when they compete with their dances. The kids love meeting their idols that they see on TV. This year we had the opportunity to take classes from and perform for Chloe Arnold, Dana Wilson, Scott Jovovich, Taja Riley, Suzi Taylor, Alxandra Damiani, Kaitlynn Edgar, and Joe Lanteri!

While the dancers were pretty tired after their first day of classes, we were still thrilled with how they performed at competition. Competition this year ended after midnight and the kids had to get up the next day for more classes, but all did with such a smile! It is such a great weekend for everyone!
