Catawba Springs dances with a star
Students and teachers at Catawba Springs Elementary School welcomed local hip-hop dancer Jackson Alvarez during a celebration Feb. 17 for exceeding their fundraising goal.
“Along with family donations, funds generated from pictures, business sponsors and corporate matches we’ve raised $19,572,” said Stacy Combs, president of the school’s Parent- Teacher Organization.
Alvarez, a dance instructor and choreographer at Star Struck Dance Studio in Lincolnton, made it to the top 150 contestants on “So You Think You Can Dance.”
