WECT 6: Online Schooling Helps Leland Teen in Dance Career

Originally aired on WECT 6.

LELAND, NC (WECT) – The North Carolina Virtual Academy (NCVA) is an online public charter school that has allowed 15-year-old Madison Toney, of Leland, to pursue her dreams of being a traveling dancer.

Toney practices dance 35 hours a week and has traveled from Las Vegas to Nashville and everywhere in between. Her schedule makes it difficult to attend a traditional brick and mortar school.

Since NCVA is entirely online, Toney is able to complete her schoolwork anywhere with an internet connection, any time of day. This flexibility has been instrumental in her dance career as she can travel freely without having to worry about missing class – as her class travels with her.
