UA Dance Alumni always stand out in a crowd! Check out what the “New York Post” had to say about freshman Rockette and 2019 BFA graduate Megan Garcia:

“Megan Garcia, a 22-year-old Latina from Naperville, Ill., received a huge surprise at the finale of the Rockettes’ “summer intensive” training program. A manager announced to the 60 women on stage, along with friends and families, that Garcia was hired on the spot. The other women crowded around to give her a group hug.
‘I’ve wanted to become a professional dancer nearly all my life,” she said. “It was a dream come true.’”
