Hometown dancers: CHS alumni can dance without leaving town

Published: Friday, January 11, 2013 at 05:01 PM.

Hannah and Aaron are eagerly awaiting word on whether one of their first big breaks into the performing arts world will become a reality.

Last week, they auditioned for producer David Winters’ film “East Side Story,” a retelling of “West Side Story” but about dancers from opposite backgrounds. Winters starred in both the original Broadway cast as well as the 1961 film version of “West Side Story.”

“I’ve been sleeping with my phone on my pillow waiting for the call,” Hannah said.

Having a pair of local young dancers on their staff was fortunate for the studio’s owners.

“Finding them has been luck for us,” Moreno said.

“We like having local people,” Colón said. “They’re known in the community and we like keeping the business in town.”

And Hannah and Aaron like finding a hometown opportunity to pursue their passion.
