FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. (WNCN) — Eleven dancers from Studio Five Dance Company in Fuquay-Varina will also be in Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
They’ve been practicing for months, as well as trying to raise money to get to New York.
The studio’s owner says she’s excited her girls get this chance.
“They love dance. I helped instill that passion in them and they get to share that with everybody,” said Meghan Retseck, the owner of Studio Five Dance Company.
The dancers and their families will leave Saturday and spend the week in New York before the actual parade on Thursday.
