Just when it felt as though we were just getting started, we finished the final main stage production of the year, the dance concert. This year’s theme was Fem and Ism. All Upper School dance classes and the advanced Middle School dance class participated. Most of the dances in the concert were choreographed by students within these classes.
Reflecting on the production, dance teacher Laura Bamford said, “It takes courage and vulnerability to put yourself on stage in front of hundreds of people and show them who you are and to share your stories.”

“To do so through dance, while simultaneously bringing awareness to important issues that impact women, takes strength, conviction, community, and artistic integrity.”
