WHEATLAND - Dance Wyoming recently held its annual Spring Fling where more than 100 students from age 3 to 18 performed a variety of Hip Hop, Tap, Jazz, Irish, and Ballet routines. Three special awards were presented during the performance, including Spirit of the Year Award, awarded to Sheva Dubois, by her Irish Step Dance teacher, Molly Cundall.
“Seva is one of those kids that loves being around people,” Cundall said. “She is never late for class and has not missed one class all semester. She helps others and always has an encouraging word.”
The 2022 recipients of the Joe Fabian Memorial Dance Scholarship were Matthew Streets and Serenity Whelchel. Streets, a senior at Wheatland High School, has been a dancer at the studio since he was about six or 7 years old and will attend the University of Wyoming where he will pursue an engineering degree. His parents are Mark and Taryn Streets.
Whelchel, a home-school senior, has also danced since she was about the same age, and is planning to attend the Jackson Hole Bible College where she will pursue an education in Biblical Foundations with hopes of becoming a camp counselor. She is the daughter of Randy and Summer Whelchel.
Fabian said there will be a summer dance camp for ages 5-8 beginning in July, adding that registration information can be found at www.dancewyoming.com. A full class schedule will begin in September with early registration in August. For details visit the website or like Dance Wyoming’s Facebook page.
