Celebrate Those Who Graduate | May 19, 2015

Dear Friends,

In this letter I want to let you know a few things and also to thank you for being such an important part of our 2014/15 season. Whether you are an artist, student, parent, audience or community member BAX would not be the organization WE ARE WITHOUT YOU.

Some news:
Please join us to celebrate ODESSA JACOBSON who will graduate from BAX on Sunday June 7, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. Odessa is a Senior at Beacon High School in NYC.  She has been studying dance at BAX for 15 years.  She started out as a preschooler in BAX’s renowned Creative Movement Program and will be graduating with a vast amount of pre-professional experience including a full scholarship (through BAX) to the American Dance Festival, attendance at the Bates College Dance program and her tenure as part of BAX’s most advanced performing workshop. She will begin her college “career” at Bennington College in VT in September 2015.

We are happy to have offered two of our current Artist in residence Paloma McGregor and Aurin Squire the opportunity to have a second year of residency at BAX and they have accepted. Stay posted for who will join them in the next BAXnews.

Here’s a picture worth a thousand words: Date around 1999. Dance teacher Tessa Nebrida. We have identified Kelly Healy and Anna Poe-Kest. Do you recognize anyone else?
