The Juilliard School in New York City is known as one of the best and most exclusive performing arts schools in the nation. Each year, they typically accept about 24 students into their dance program. This year, two of them are from New Mexico. Terrance Matthews and Hugo Pizano shared their advice for other young, aspiring dancers.

Even to the untrained eye, Pizano and Matthews in motion are mesmerizing.

“He pushes me to do better- and I’m sure I do the same,” Matthews said.

“And vice-versa,” Pizano confirmed.

Their skills and passion earned them two of around two dozen spots at one of the nation’s most prestigious performing arts colleges.
