This weekend was bittersweet. The Senn Arts Dancers, directed by lead-educator Kelly Hume-Geremia, put on a wonderful show, and several of us participated in the yearly Senn Arts Dance auditions. So why bittersweet? It was only four years ago that Inspiración first began working with Senn Arts. It was a new program, and we helped with several aspects of its initiation, including their first dance audition. At that audition we saw everything from impressive youngsters with significant classical training to a young man who absolutely wowed us with his breakdancing improvisation. Over the years, we have worked with these young people, placing choreography and watching them grow and grow with every show.
January is back and it is again time for the Senn High School dance auditions. Inspiración dancers supported the program as judges in the first Senn Arts dance audition back in January of 2013 and we're still there today. It has been truly wonderful to watch the students grow from new freshmen to mature seniors about to move on to the next phases of their lives. We'd like to say a big thank you to the Senn Arts Dance director, Kelly Hume Geremia, for continuing to partner with us and a big shout-out goes to Inspiración dancers Johnny LaSalle and Sam Mourad for giving their Satruday afternoon to help usher in the next generation of Senn Arts Dancers.
