(Los Angeles, CA–March 11, 2019) High Tech Dance Department alumnus Idaliz Cristian (Class of 2017), currently on tour with singer/songwriter Khalid, has just been featured in Khalid’s latest video for his song “Talk,” announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
In 2017, Khalid received five nominations at the Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Best R&B Song (“Location”), and Song of the Year. He also won the Top New Artist Award at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. Signed to Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records, Khalid appeared as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.
Cristian, who moved to Los Angeles shortly after graduating from High Tech, has been on tour with Khalid since graduation. She has been building an impressive resume in the past two years, as her talents have been showcased in film and modeling as well as live shows featuring her dance skills.
“Idaliz never ceases to amaze me with her talent,” says Trista DeFilippis, veteran Dance Instructor and Supervisor of The Academy of Media, Visual and Performing Arts at High Tech. “She is a natural performer, and always has been since she stepped on the High Tech stage.”
“We couldn’t be prouder of the work Idaliz is doing out in LA,” adds DeFilippis.
