     An announcement was recently made about three of Newnan's Classical Dance Theatre students being accepted into the American Ballet Theatre's prestigious Summer Intensive training program, a great accomplishment!  Well, as amazing as this is, it turns out that there is yet more to announce.  One of these same students, Meghan Novoa, has also been accepted into another prestigious Summer Intensive Program, the one run another of our nation's top ballet schools, the Orlando Ballet in Orlando, Florida.  And another Classical Dance Theatre (CDT) student will be joining her there:  Victoria Smith. 
This is the information released by the CDT Publicity Director Greta Watkins:

     Victoria Smith, of Newnan,  has been accepted to attend Orlando Ballet School's 2009 Summer Intensive Program.  Miss Smith trains at Classical Dance Theatre (CDT) in Newnan.  After a highly competitive audition process, Miss Smith was selected to attend five weeks of training at one of the most prestigious dance schools in the U.S.
