Nicola Kubzdela placed in the top 24 in the Senior Age Division (ages 15-19), in which she was one of the youngest dancers competing.

The Classical Ballet Theatre students competed in the recent semi-finals of the Youth America Grand Prix ballet competition, held in Philadelphia, Pa. They performed classical ballet and contemporary repertoire and received much recognition. Community members may see them perform again on the evening of Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Reston Community Center.
