The AHA Awards Story
Eleven awards correspond to each year of Alana’s life
At this unique & prestigious event - eleven little girls & eleven boys present a red rose to eleven Junior & eleven Supreme finalists. Finalists from ‘Junior Scholars’ & ‘Supreme Awards’ sections each receive awards to further their careers in New Zealand or overseas. Scholarship awards are also offered to selected semi-or quarter finalists.
Continued support from the dance community throughout the world has escalated the prize pool to a total of $460,000 including cash awards, international training scholarships & travel grants. This is a wonderful tribute to a dedicated & talented 11yr old dancer.
Alana was taken before she could reach her goal but would have wanted to help other dancers reach their goals.
