Patricia Gasparini began both WPS and dance at WPS in the 11th grade. Patricia’s favorite memory of dancing at WPS was every dance show. Before entering the stage, her class would make a circle in the hallway, sharing encouraging words and spreading good energy. It always helped them to have a great performance. She will be attending the University of South Florida -Tampa studying Biology with a focus in Pre-Med. Patricia, thank you for your dedication to the WPS Dance Program.
