CHOREOGRAPHY AWARDS

Awarded to a performance that HD judges would like to recognize for their outstanding choreography and excellence in their art form. All performances are eligible except solos.

SPIRIT AWARD

This award is inspired by Mia Michael’s quote, “When your spirit dances…your body will follow,” and is given to a soloist that inspires us throughout the competition because they truly dance from the heart. Passion speaks louder than turns, leaps & tricks and High Demand appreciates that and would like to recognize that quality in a dancer.

HONORING SANDRINO'S SACRIFICE SCHOLARSHIP

The scholarship recipient will receive a class card package to Broadway Dance Center in NYC. The scholarship is given in honor of Sgt. Alessandro Plutino who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011. Sgt. Plutino is a soldier High Demand holds very close to their hearts and had a deep love and passion for his country. High Demand would like to honor their hero by presenting this award to a dancer that embodies the same fire for their passion of dance and whose hard work is recognized on the stage.
