(Pittsburgh, PA—January 2, 2018) For a third consecutive year, the High Tech Dance Department will perform at the National High School Dance Festival, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
This year’s National High School Dance Festival will take place at Point Park University from February 28ththrough March 4th.  Out of the 234 dance selections submitted for adjudication by the National High School Dance committee, the committee has chosen only 67 pieces. 
One of which the committee chose happens to be the work of High Tech senior dance major Elyssa Cueto, a resident of North Bergen.  Her piece, Flume, had originally been featured in Meraki, High Tech Dance’s April showcase.  Cueto has even appeared in Jennifer Lopez’s music video, “Amor, Amor, Amor.”

“I’m extremely proud that the committee recognized Elyssa’s work and I look forward to seeing her piece performed at the festival,” declares Trista DeFilippis, Head of the High Tech Dance Department and the school’s Performing Arts Liaison.  “This festival is an amazing experience for the dancers because they get to meet, take class, audition, and perform among peers of their artistic caliber.”
