FAIRFIELD, Conn. — The D’Valda & Sirico Dance and Music Centre in Fairfield this summer received two national titles — America’s Best Dance School and America’s Best Performing Arts School. And the center is holding an open house to celebrate.
The center was awarded these honors at the Access Broadway National Competition at the Play Station Theater on Broadway.
"Over the 18 years of doing this National only one other school has won both titles. D'Valda and Sirico deserve both of these awards and their work was outstanding," says Access Broadway Director Ron DeVito.
In the event, the studio competed for three days against schools from all over the nation, with over 850 acts in all styles of dance, acting and singing in solo, duet/trio and group numbers.
The studio featured students from Fairfield, Westport, Weston, Bridgeport and Norwalk.
On Friday, Sept. 9, the studio will be officially presented with these two awards during a ceremony and party to begin at 6 p.m. The studio is also offering a free day of dance and music on Saturday, Sept. 10, to celebrate with the community.
The titles are given to the school that garners the most winning numbers throughout the national competition.
The award of America’s Best Dance School is given to the studio with the highest point total from all the dance routines presented at the competition over three days.
The award of America’s Best Performing Arts Studio is given to the school with the highest total of dance, vocal and acting points combined.
