DALLAS, Texas (August 24, 2016) – Jeffrey Giles, the president and CEO of Dallas-based HTEDance & Spirit Group, Inc. announced today that they have been contracted to select, organize and choreograph a “best-of-the-best” dance team to be featured in the opening ceremonies of Pasadena’s 128th Rose Parade® presented by Honda.

These dancers are to be selected from over 10,000 participants in the 2016 HTEDance Summer Camps programs held all over the state of Texas this past summer.
“So it is with great pride that we extend an invitation to Stacie Weisberg and her Forney High School Highsteppers to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!” said Mr. Giles. “The Highsteppers are a crowd favorite at HTEDance and the have continuously demonstrated an extraordinary passion and professionalism in their performances with HTEDance and we want them on our team again!”
He went on to say, “You can be sure that we reserve such an invitation for a very select few teams who possess the passion and performance qualities worthy of such a time-honored and nationally-treasured event.”
“We expect the Forney HS Highsteppers will bring a great quality to our event,” said Mr. Giles. “We are looking forward to working with them in Los Angeles!”
