RRPJ-Local Student Dances-18Nov16

Addison Bounds is a 6th grade student at Red River Junior High School. And she is also a performer. Bounds is a student of dance at Power and Grace School of Performing Arts in Shreveport. She has been recognized for her proficiency in ballet with appearances on “the big stage.”

Recently she performed with the Moscow Ballet at the Strand Theatre in Shreveport. She danced in “The Nutcracker” recently. Last spring Bounds danced in “The Tale As Old As Time,” also at the Strand.

Bounds was congratulated by School Superintendent Alison Hughes and presented a certificate of achievement. Hughes said, “I would like to highlight one of our Red River Junior High students. She is an honor student and member of Beta Club. She sings in the Red River School Choir. She enjoys dancing, playing the piano, singing and reading.”

Hughes announced that Bounds would be one of 30 dancers invited to New York for the opportunity of a lifetime. Hughes said, “She will dance on a Broadway stage, meet some of the cast from various Broadway productions. She will also have the chance to dance in Times Square.”
