Student Profile: The Language of Dance

Denver Online High School Sophomore Abbey McWhirter
Denver Online High School Sophomore Abbey McWhirter

Sophomore Abbey McWhirter came to Denver Online High School last year due to her rigorous dance schedule at Colorado Ballet. Participating in the Pre-Professional training program, she needed a schooling option that allowed her to complete school around her passion for dance.

Not only was she able to pursue dance outside of school, but her teachers even created opportunities for her to incorporate her interests into school projects as well.

“At DOHS, I am lucky to have teachers who encourage me to use my artistic abilities in the classroom,” said McWhirter.

See how she combined the art of dance and the famous story of Romeo and Juliet into a self-choreographed dance interpretation of Juliet in her English course here.
