Francesca ‘Frankie’ Mezzio ‘24 Wins Big at Dance Competition!
A huge round of applause to Francesca ‘Frankie’ Mezzio ‘24, who recently was named Overall Soloblast Grand Champion out of 97 soloists at the West Coast Dance Explosion competition in Virginia. Frankie competed with the 25 North Dance Studio, under the direction of Ms. Pamela Schickler, which won the Spirit of West Coast Award and placed first in the group category. Her solo, ‘Silence’ – which was inspired by her personal progressive hearing loss – earned her several additional awards, including Platinum Female Elite Dancer, Overall High Score Teen, and Judges Choice Passion Power.
