Lithia, Florida (May 9, 2014) – Julestarz Academy for the Performing Arts announces that its Dance Company has been selected to compete in the Star Dance Alliance World Championships in The Meadowlands, in New Jersey in August.
Their production of “Aladdin” was one of only seven numbers selected among 1,040 competing numbers.
Julie Kenny, owner of Julestarz Academy, pointed out the significance of this honor: “These are the world championships!” she said excitedly. “We received a “Gold Ticket” invitation. It is a huge honor, and not something that comes around easily,” she added. The honor was the culmination of one full year’s work to develop the coordination skill and theatrical presentation to make this achievement possible.
The number includes 43 dancers with an amazing set including pillars to look like the Taj Mahal, a 6 foot elephant that Aladdin sits on and a 5 foot Genie lamp the Genie pops out of. The number is truly magical!
The dance company is now faced with the task of financing their trip to The Meadowlands in New Jersey. For more information about Julestarz Academy for the Performing Arts or how to help the company finance their trip, call Julie Kenny at 813-661-9037, Patty Montgomery at 864-752-7755 or Theresa Jomisko at 813-294-7611.
