A Fargo South High School dancer is spending the next week in Paris. But she won't be the average tourist.

Instead, 15-year-old Renée Coulombe will ring in the New Year dancing in front of the Eiffel Tower as part of the Universal Dance Association All-Star Team.

"It's a big deal," the Fargo South sophomore said of being one of the youngest dancers on the team. "It shows all my work is paying off."

She competed against 300 to 400 Minnesota and North Dakota dancers to get a spot on the team. She'll fly to Paris today with her parents and spend a week overseas.

"She's working with some of the best of the best," Bruinkix Coach Jessie Mattern said, adding it will help her con-tinue with dance in college. "Any college dance team is going to ask, 'What are your accomplishments?' (This experience is) going to be a huge standout."
