Six Key West High School Conchettes have been selected to perform in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Having attended the Marching Auxiliaries Summer Dance program at the University of Florida in Gainesville, the Conchettes were given instruction in a variety of dance genres including kick line, contemporary and hip hop. Due to their dance ability, team work, and attitude, Tristin Blackwell, Riley Falconer, Daniela Pena, Marina Perez, Morgan Pierce, and Talia Santiago were selected by their instructors to receive an invitation to perform with the Spirit of America Dance Productions in this year’s Macy’s Parade on November 27. The group has set up a gofundme.com account as a fundraiser. We are very proud to have this Key West High contingent represent the Conchs in the Macy’s Day Parade!
