The Ridgefield School of Dance extends both best wishes and congratulations to graduating Ridgefield High School seniors Mackenzie Whitelaw and Madison Rucolas and Wilton High School senior Rachel Castaldi. All three have been taking dance classes since they were toddlers and are members of the Ballet Company.
Mackenzie began dancing at age 3, and joined the studio after moving to Ridgefield at age 5. Madison has been dancing here for 15 years since age 2. Rachel started dancing when she was three and came to the studio in 6th grade. They have danced in many ballets, including classical ballets The Cinderella Ballet, Coppelia, Sleeping Beauty, selections from Les Sylphides, Paquita and Swan Lake, original ballets Alice in Wonderland, Carnival of the Animals, Madeline and the annual Nutcracker performances. All three have performed with the jazz department where Madison and Mackenzie are company members.
