Congratulations! And meet Andrea! -

Yes, congratulations to our super six who made the final cut of tryouts: Jessie DiMartino, Kelley Kim, Andrea Maylath, Gabriella Scalzo, Trish Wang, and Melissa Wong!  It was a tough, tough, super-fast tryout routine you all had to learn this year, but our super six did great and we’re stoked to have you on the team!

That being said, we think it’s about time we got to know some our newbies, and how they felt auditioning!

Meet Andrea
