Gorham dancers in nationals

Dancers Mariel Roy and Amelia Whitten, both of Gorham, are among the dancers from the Centre of Movement School of Performing Arts on State Street who are competing in national dance competition in New York City.

Before competing in New York, Roy and Whitten attended a five-day ballet seminar in Atlantic City, N.J. Their teacher in Gorham, Vicky Lloyd, said the two dancers studied ballet in New Jersey for five days from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily with some of the “country’s finest master teachers.”

Lloyd said Roy and Whitten earned tuition scholarships in regional competition. “They will compete their winning dance routines at the national level and then study four full days on scholarship at the Dance Educators of America Convention,” Lloyd said.

“These young dancers also sold ads for their studio’s recital program to help fund their travel expenses. They are very appreciative to everyone who sponsored their efforts,” Lloyd added. “Traveling to study with so many wonderful teachers, meeting and dancing with other students from all over the United States and the world is really exciting.”
