Middle School Division (Grades 6-8)

Audrey Shen
Title: What Are Words
Grade: 6
Pearl Zanker School PTA
“Words are expressive. Words can hurt, discourage, and they can also inspire and heal. In the form of promises, words convey our commitment to loved ones and they bring us closer to each other when fulfilled.My contemporary lyrical dance is a statement of the power of words. The spirit of being true to our words is teeming in every leap, turn and extension. Heartfelt words unveil the beautiful contours of our devotion to family and friends. Despite life’s ups and downs, we should always say what we mean, and mean what we say.”

High School Division (Grades 9-12)

Eliana Merritt
Title: Voice of the Stories
Grade: 9
Laguna Beach High School PTA
“Voice of the stories was inspired by stories. The dancer finds a book on the floor, and begins to dance with it. After she reads it, she puts it down. Continuing to dance, she eventually tries to speak out, but fails. When she’s at her lowest point, the dancer sees the book again and begins to read it again. Inspired by the stories in the book, she speaks out and shows her voice again. Content, she goes to sleep.”
