Special Artist Division (All Grades)

Timothy Mockett
Title: Change comes from within
Grade: 12
John Burroughs High School PTSA (First District)
“I’m hopeful because I believe that people can do great things. The need to make a change within themselves so they can make positive changes in the world. People must be able to compromise. They shouldn’t focus on what’s in it for them. I think people are capable of change for good, not selfish reasons. I used Michael Jackson’s song Man n The Mirror, because it speaks about the bad things in life, but asks the person to look within themselves to make the changes the world needs. So… go out and make that change!”

Intermediate Division (Grades (3-5)

Bridget Werner
Title: Whatever You Desire
Grade: 5
Walnut Grove Elementary School (Peralta District)
“I choreographed a dance for four people to Choose Your Fighter by Ava Max. Originally, I pictured four dancers in formations on stage, but then I noticed parts of the song sound like a video game. So instead, I decided to make them four video game players. I performed all the parts to show different choices I could make. I am hopeful because I know that no matter what I do choose, if I give it all I’ve got I can be a winner. My desire is to be a choreographer someday.”

High School Division (Grades 9-12)

Adrienne Gonzalez
Title: Imagine More
Grade: 11
Torrance High School PTA Inc (Thirty-Third District)
“This dance is my story. I was born in 2007 to a teenage mom who felt hopeless. She gave me up to give me hope and a future. I grew up in an orphanage until I was adopted in 2011 and left for the U.S. This summer, I went back to the orphanage. I am hopeful for me and the other kids at the orphanage because of love and family. My adoptive parents dreamed and imagined life with me. Dreams unexpected, forever connected. I am hopeful that the other kids will find a good family, just like I did.”
