YMCA Dance Company member receives grant

SCOTCH PLAINS — Amy Walejewsky, a member of the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA Dance Company, received a workshop scholarship from the Associated Dance Teachers of New Jersey on Sunday, Jan. 20.

This scholarship is awarded to only 12 students at every workshop based on positive attitude, active participation in the class, dance etiquette, enthusiasm for the work being presented and effort expended during the classes.

The Associated Dance Teachers of New Jersey is a nonprofit professional organization for dance teachers established in 1936. The dance workshops bring top-of-the-line master classes to New Jersey.

The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA Dance Company is for dancers ages 7 through 18 who are interested in expanding their performance skills. The company participates in workshops, attends performances, compete at competitions and perform in various venues.

Registration is going on now for early spring session programs at the Welcome Center of the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA in Scotch Plains.
