Some local dancers will be making their way to the Big Apple to take part in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Four girls from St. Albans Dance Studio were chosen to take part in the parade this year. It will be their first time going and they will be a part of the Spirit of America Productions and they will be the youngest of the company to go.
For their coach, Amy Trent, this will be her third trip to the parade and she couldn't be prouder.
"They have just blood sweat and tears they have put into this. So I mean I don't know what else to say. Long hours of practice, we spend long hours," said Trent.
For one of the students, Katie Walker, she's just excited to "be on tv in front of millions of people."
That parade will be held Thanksgiving morning from New York City.
