Pro/Motion – week of March 25

Dear BDA Community,

In hopes that we’ll be able to put our winter coats away for good shortly, I am always so inspired by the amount and the quality of the work so many dancers are doing in the area. While I also keep myself warm in rehearsals and creatively exploring movement practices, I am specially grateful to be a part of this strong community of people who appreciate dance.

As we wrap up March madness, I would personally like to thank you for being a part of this dance ecosystem and for keeping dance always so vibrant. BDA is here because of you and for you.

Thank you,

Carmen S. Rizzo, Operations and Membership Associate.
