Three Local Dancers Earn All-State Honors

Academics, Leadership and Service Among Criteria


Danil England and Faith Kiger of Broadneck High School, along with Josie Dike of Severna Park High School, were presented with awards at an all-county dance gala in March.

These three young women were among 11 from Anne Arundel County, and 25 statewide, to earn this designation. Though a live competition had been scheduled, COVID concerns this winter forced the contest to a virtual format. The dancers submitted a showcase video to be evaluated by a panel of judges. Criteria for the designation of all-state included technique, musicality, professionalism, performance, attitude and likelihood of future success in dance. Additionally, the dancers must have had a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, exhibit leadership at their schools and have a record of service to their local dance program.
