HOUSTON -

It’s an opportunity of a lifetime for a Houston group that will dance on the big stage on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

The Mitsi Dance School has been teaching classical ballet, Chinese dance and modern dance for nearly 30 years. On Tuesday night, 20 girls will take the stage on national television.

Many of the students said their years of dancing are paying off as they compete for “America’s Got Talent.”

“America’s Got Talent” airs Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. on Local 2.
