Pennsbury High School Class of 2015 graduate Emily Peters, of Fairless Hills, has been dancing since age three. All that dancing has gotten her places, as she has been accepted into the Rockette Summer Intensive, a highly competitive program in New York City for advanced dancers where they train in the Rockettes style. Many dancers from this program have become real Radio City Rockettes.
Last year, Emily was accepted as one of only a few high-school-aged dancers into the program’s Invitational Week. She was offered a scholarship that’s only given to 10 applicants out of approximately 1,000.
“This week is designed for select students and is a great honor,” says Robin Peters, Emily’s mother. “It’s a lot of hard work. She has had the dream to be a Rockette since she was little after seeing them on the Thanksgiving Day parade.”
