Savannah Dance Festival is pleased to announce that Dominique Terrell of Savannah, Georgia, has been awarded the “Victor Alfredo Chavez” Scholarship. Hosted by Armstrong Atlantic State University, dancers over age 16 were invited to audition for a full scholarship to attend the American Dance Festival’s 2013 Six Week School.

She specializes in Modern, Hip Hop, Ballet, Jazz and West African styles of dance. Christine Fehr, dance instructor at SAA notes, “Dominique is a wonderful example of how a dancer’s experience in many different dance forms with many different teachers culminate to form a new unique artistic direction. She is a role model for the diversity needed from dancers to be able to survive in today’s changing world of dance.”
Terrell was selected by Gerri Houlihan – Co-Dean of American Dance Festival (ADF) and Professor of Dance at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.
