JUDGES’ CHOICE AWARD

This award is chosen by the judges in a vote. It is for a particular scene, musical number, dance number, ensemble effort, or group that the judges feel stands out enough to warrant the special recognition.

This year, the recipient is Longwood High School for the dance core in their production of “Cinderella.” The dancers especially the horses pulling the carriage were fantastic!
