      Local dancers get national stage

      Fifteen high school students from Dickinson and Iron Counties have been offered the opportunity to dance at the Cotton Bowl, Capital One Bowl and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. MA Dance instructors came in from Texas for the week to train Iron Mountain Dance Crew, Iron Mountain High School and Forest Park High School. Students who were consistent with technique and form were presented the opportunity to join MA Dance and dancers from around the nation performing at any or all of those three events.

      "It makes me really excited because not very many people get the chance, considering the fact that this is my first year ever doing anything like this. It's really awesome," said dancer Aaron Pope.

      The students do have to cover their own travel expenses and will start fundraising to pay for their travel costs.
