October 16th -- Acid Rain #@9

This brisk Viennese Waltz, choreographed by Geoff Newell, took things to the next level with costumes and elaborate makeup that are reminiscent of Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1st and 2nd.  Great job to all the dancers!


October 16th -- Sir Duke #@9

We had a special treat at our alumni dance this homecoming weekend: an exclusive #@9 cast spanning 5 generations of BPG alumni! Thanks to alums David Detweiler and Jennifer Adams for choreographing, and a special shoutout to these dancers who took time out of their busy lives to bring this to us. You all are the best and we miss you!
