As the semester winds down we've had to say goodbye to our Sarabande seniors, but usher in our new e-board. Check out the updated members tab to see what's up! Though our performances are pretty much over for the semester, be sure to come out for our last Open Class of the semester taught by alum Jamie Gang (RSVP HERE).
As a graduating senior, I (Cindy Ko) am also passing on the reins of Sarabande Web/Media to Yessenia Rivas, so look out for some fun, new, awesome updates from this girl in the coming year :] She will also be heading and organizing Sarabande Open Dance Classes, so obviously come back in the Fall to check out what's up (and dance with us!).
Good luck with finals, keep dancing, & have wonderful summers!
Thank you to all for your love and support this past month! We performed for two amazing audiences April 5 and 7, and have since then performed at various venues.
We want to give a HUGE thanks to Relay for Life, the Amalgamates (our first Goddard Chapel/Accapella guest group performance/amazing experience), April Open House, and TDC.
We have 3 exciting announcements/opportunities to watch us dance AND participate:
Sarabande will be a guest act at the Spirit of Color Shows (Thurs & Fri, April 26-27 at 9 and 9:30 PM). Members of Sarabande are also in SOC so you definitely don't want to miss this :) RSVP via FB Here.
