As many of you may know, Chaityn Issacson-Brewster and Alissa Elegant are two longtime Ah-Lan Dance community members, both as dancers and as teachers in our Studio.
Recently, Chaityn and Alissa took part in the International Chinese Dance Competition – Western US Regional Division Competition, and both came away with great distinction:
– Chaityn won overall Second Prize
– Alissa won a Special Award
Congratulations to both for their excellent performances!
Now both of them are heading off to a new chapter in their lives: Chaityn is going to enter the Dance program at UC Irvine, on the nation’s best dance programs; and Alissa is going to China on a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship, with a special project to research and create a database of Chinese dance styles and techniques.
Wonderful news for both, and we wish them great success!
