Park City High Dance Company ranked at top in state
Park City High School Dance Company and Dance Company 2 received a Superior rating at the Utah Dance Educator's Organization High School Dance Festival on March 17. Ashley Mott, dance company director, said that this is the highest ranking a school can achieve. It is the first time Park City High has earned the rank. The festival is not division-divided, so that ranking is against schools of all sizes across the state. The festival also had a master class taught by dancer and choreographer Dan Higgins.
