As a teacher of dance in Harford County I have never been so proud of how our county was represented. Our teams, families and friends supported each other and represented their schools and counties with sportsmanship and integrity. It is a testament to the training and leadership that our students are given and the dedication that our students give to their chosen craft.

As a parent of one of the Aberdeen Dance Company members, it was a honor to attend and be apart of this event. It was nice to see three schools come together and support one another from the same county. Harford County was definitely well represented that day. Congratulations to all members and to all the coaches who teach/coach these wonderful students,especially to Amy Ferrigno, for winning Coach of the Year. She has been teaching/coaching my daughter all four years of her high school life and has been a big influence in her life. It was nice to see her get the recognition she so deserves.

Congratulations to all 3 dance teams especially to Aberdeen Dance Company. You have worked very hard this year and have come a long way! Keep it up and look forward to seeing you perform in Virginia Beach at the US Finals. To Coach Amy- You deserve the Coach of the Year award. You have been more than a coach to all of your dancers. You have most importantly been their friend and fearless leader and they love you. We all do! Congratulations once again to all of you.
