On Dec. 7, 2003, Arianna Timmerman, 9-year-old daughter of Chuck Timmerman of Cherryville and Vicki Timmerman Blythe of Lincolnton, took top score and honors of her age group at the Dance Machine Productions Regional Competition in Elkin.
Timmermanâ€™s free-style solo dance routine consisted of a mix of lyrical, jazz and acrobatic stunts. She will be performing her solo again at the national competition to vie for the title of Americaâ€™s Miss Dance. The competition will be held in Wilkesboro June 24-27.
She also earned a coveted spot on the official dance team of the national competition, “The Dream Team.” She studies jazz, tap, lyrical, gymnastics and is on the performance team at Tammieâ€™s On-Stage Productions in Cherryville.
