At the recent Intrigue Dance Convention in Coral Springs, Dance Universe Mini Tribe member Locklyn Scott of Wellington, age 7, was awarded the prestigious Mini Apprentice scholarship award. Only three children in the mini age category received this distinction. Mini Apprentice honorees receive unlimited free classes through 2025 Nationals or until the dancer moves into the Junior level at age 9, whichever comes first.
Dancers who receive this honor receive free entry to Intrigue Nationals for duration of the scholarship. They also get the opportunity to compete in Title Finals at Nationals and the opportunity to become an Intrigue Assistant for the following season.
In addition to this honor, Scott’s solo “Her,” choreographed by Isabella Murcia Santana, placed second in the lyrical category and sixth overall in the solo competition, and also received a special judges’ award for “beautiful storytelling.”
Scott began dancing at Dance Universe, under the direction of Traci-Ann Pearce Skinner in March 2022. The dance universe company has been recognized for exceptionally talented dancers. The company is based on an invite-only process. Students are watched in class by the faculty, and then interviewed before entrance. The company trains for numerous hours in the studio each week. They travel to perform and compete all over the country. Learn more about Dance Universe at www.danceuniversewpb.com.
