Anthem’s pride just got a leg up. Arizona Health and Physical Education (AzAHPERD) congratulates Boulder Creek High School’s Stacy Shane for her designation as National Dance Teacher of the Year, K-12. Shane received the award at the AAHPERD’s annual convention in Charlotte, North Carolina on April 24th.

We’re thrilled she’s achieved national recognition, and we offer her hearty congratulations!”
Shane says she was, “overwhelmed, excited, grateful and humbled” to have been selected from a group of highly qualified peers. Her teaching philosophy empowers her students to master technique, but also, to learn about themselves and the world around them through the lens of dance.
