High school dance team member performs with All-American team
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - Alyssa Birdsong danced with Universal Dance Association's All-American Team during the Thanksgiving Day Parade in Houston, Texas held last year.

Birdsong, who is a member of Palo Verde High School's junior varsity dance team, was participating with her local team during camp the group attended in the summer.

A member of the UDA All-American Team asked her to try-out for the national team and after making the team, Birdsong had to raise money to pay for the trip to Houston, which she did through contributions from people and businesses in Blythe.

In between the busy dance rehearsal schedule, while she was in Houston, Birdsong was able to visit NASA as well as make many new friends from all over the U.S. The group was also treated to a Texas barbecue and a dance.

There were more than 300 girls who also made the team and who Birdsong was able to perform with. The PVHS freshman is the daughter of Jennifer and Jeff Birdsong of Blythe.
