Abilene's cast was chosen to represent the children's chorus on training aids distributed nationwide.

2017 found us having a busy year with perofmances at Texas Tech University half-time performance at a Big 12 Basketball game.  It was an amazing experience to perform to thousands of people who gave the dancers a standing ovation. 

2017 also saw a return to competition.  We have always been successful in competition and this year was no exception.  AMP Dance Competition in Mildand was a new one for us and as usual we stood head and shoulders above the rest.  I was so proud of their committment and performance in all the group routines, duets and solos..
