The DSD Student Dance Company had their annual sleepover this weekend. The Company has been around for over 30 years, and this tradition is a great way for the participants in this student-led organization to bond even more as well as get in some extra practice. Between the late-night rehearsals, games and other shenanigans, there wasn't much sleeping but there was a lot of fun had by all.
DSD students and teachers visited VCU to support new student Ella Richmond, who entered two pieces in an "Open Marley Night" started by her former instructor. The event was an open invitation to local dancers to showcase finished works or works in progress and audience feedback was encouraged. It was a stimulating night of dance and contemplation of the artform. We were so proud of Ella -- not only did she perform beautifully, she handled questions and comments about her piece with grace. We hope to participate as a studio next year as well! Congrats Ella on a great job!
Dance for the love of dance. We like to travel and enjoy every step!
