Awarded to a performance that HD judges would like to recognize for their outstanding choreography and excellence in their art form. All performances are eligible except solos.
This award is given to a soloist that inspires us throughout the competition because they truly dance from the heart. Passion speaks louder than turns, leaps & tricks and High Demand appreciates that and would like to recognize that quality in a dancer.
The scholarship recipient will receive a dance class card to Broadway Dance Center in NYC. The scholarship is given in honor of Sgt. Alessandro Plutino who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011. Sgt. Plutino is a soldier High Demand holds very close to their hearts and had a deep love and passion for his country. High Demand would like to honor their hero by presenting this award to a dancer that embodies the same fire for their passion of dance and whose hard work is recognized on the stage.
At the conclusion of the competition the HD judges will select the top performance (regardless of score, division, genre and/or category) that they want to see perform again in the HD Dance-Off! We also have a wild card nominee from the performance with the most votes from our DanceComp Genie app (solos are not eligible).
HD values the respect dancers, teachers, studio directors and families give one another at competitions and want to recognize the studio that our backstage crew feels went above and beyond!
