Thank You to All Who Came to Words to Move by!
We would like to express deep appreciation and gratitude to all who came out to our annual Spring Show, Words to Move by. With all proceeds going towards Company of Muses, an amazing non-profit that provides scholarships to dancers at BSD, we were able to raise enough money to keep meeting nearly 100% of need-based scholarships for the Summer and Fall semesters! The show drew a resounding positive response from the community, and choreographers, technicians, and dancers alike should be very proud of what they accomplished. It is always such a reward to experience the fruits of so much labor – while performing on stage! We are already excited for next year’s show!

Guest Teacher Spotlight: Rohan Bhargava
Rohan is the artistic director of Rovaco Dance Company, and will be in residence and teaching during the 2nd week of the Summer Dance Intensive (June 25th-29th.)
He’ll be teaching contemporary and repertory all week – be sure not to miss it!
Dedicated to creating bold, innovative, and physical dance works, Rovaco’s mission is to tell intriguing and authentic stories through movement. The aim is to create art that entertains, builds community, and sparks conversations. Rovaco’s teaching philosophy focuses on anatomically sound practices that help the body reach its full movement potential. Combining ideas of release, initiation, expansion, and momentum, the company’s movement aesthetic is cathartic and invigorating.
