“I am so proud of the team and would like to congratulate the dancers, and members of the Dance Council: Katie Lepore, Kristin DeAmorim, and Emily Rivers,” said dance teacher, Tara Calvano. “A special thank you goes out to our talented choreographers, Katie Lepore and Kristin DeAmorim, for all their efforts.”
Well done, SMC Dance Team!
