Collegiate dancers perform at Orange Bowl
Eighteen Collegiate School students performed in the Orange Bowl halftime show in Miami with country music artist Jake Owen on New Year's Day. The Collegiate group was one of four Virginia dance troupes to perform at halftime of Florida State's victory over Northern Illinois, which aired on ESPN.
During their trip, the Collegiate students participated in four dance education workshops, led by professionals such as Cris Judd (pictured with the dancers, at top), who has choreographed for the MTV Video Music Awards. The students worked together and within the school community to raise funds for travel and lodging to Florida.
