"... I would also like to personally thank the Dance Council for awarding Haley this scholarship. If it weren't for this particular scholarship, Haley would never have experienced Burklyn.

out there like the Dance Council of North Texas to recognize and support these dancers for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
