Glasgow dancers will perform in Macy’s parade

GLASGOW — Three local teenagers will have the Thanksgiving of a lifetime this year as they dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

Chenoah Lessenberry, 17, Marisa Moore, 16, and Victoria Watson, 16, all dance students at Ms. Adrienne’s Dance Studio in Glasgow, will fly to New York Saturday morning and join dancers and cheerleaders from across the country accepted by Spirit of America Productions to dance in the annual parade. The girls will spend a week in the city, rehearsing and sight-seeing with Spirit of America and their dance teacher, Adrienne Snyder, and two other chaperones.

While the invitation is not new, this is the first year Snyder’s studio has sent dancers to the parade.

“We get invited every year, but this was the first year we actually had kids who were able and willing to go,” Snyder said.

The three teens were taking a pointe class together last year when the invitation came, and decided their trio would be a good group to go to New York.

“We’ve all traveled together before and we get along,” Lessenberry said.

The girls registered for the parade in April, and from there “it just all came together.” It will be a big adventure to go without parents on a trip like this, Lessenberry said.

“New York is one of my favorite places and going there for this is like a dream come true,” Lessenberry said.
