Local dance students earn recognition

Students of Leyla Boissonnade at Bay Area Dance School in Los Altos competed in the Dance Masters of California’s All Solo Title Scholarship competition last month at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Brandon Rabaria and Jessica Fry, both students at Menlo School in Atherton, won the titles of “Mr. Dance of Northern California” and “Ms. Dance of Northern California.” Rabaria performed a lyrical solo to “No Bravery” and Fry performed a lyrical solo to “Bring Him Home.”

Aurora Vaughan, a Gunn High School student, performed a lyrical solo to “Letter to a Playground Bully” and won the title of “Teen Miss Dance of Northern California.”

Abby Alter, Emma Dulski and Shivani Parikh received placement awards.

In addition to their solos, Rabaria, Fry and Vaughan underwent an interview process and evaluation in four styles of dance – ballet, tap, jazz and acrobatics.

The dancers are scheduled to compete for national titles at the Dance Masters of America Solo Competition in Orlando, Fla., in July, along with Clark Griffin, who won “Mr. Dance of Northern California” honors in 2013.
