MILLBURN, NJ – Five Millburn High School student dancers had the opportunity of a lifetime to march in the 2014 Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in Hawaii on December 7.

Emily Brochin, Molly Berkowitz, Naomi Merlain, Brielle Shapiro and Taylor Turner each made history as being a part of the first group of dancers and cheer groups to participate in the history of the Pearl Harbor Parade.

They joined other students to form one of seven dance groups invited in “remembering the past and celebrating our future” on the 73rd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor that initiated the U.S. entry into World War II.

The Millburn students had two performances, dancing to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy at the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park on December 5. They also appeared in the Opening Ceremonies of the parade on December 7.

As a token of thanks, the group received an American flag that has flown over the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, and two plaques to recognize their participation in this historic event.

Millburn High School dance teacher Arvin Arjona choreographed their performances, with assistance from student-teacher Maddie Warriner.
