This weekend was a huge success with over 150 dancers performing in our NSCHS Dance Concert, Chapter 16! Thank you for coming to the show and for your continued support of NS Dance. We saw a quote recently that says, “Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.” This is certainly the case with our Booster Parent Volunteers and we can’t thank you enough for everything you do for our program. We continue to be excited about our growth, artistry, and Dance community.
We are proud of the dancers and very thankful we can showcase their talents in a major production. The technical theater department worked tirelessly behind the scenes under the direction of Marty Aikens. The Dancers are all members of the Dance VPA program with Artistic Directors Andrea Edmonstone and Denise Moscardelli Kent. Information about our 2013-2014 events and volunteer opportunities can be found on www.northspringsdance.com so be sure to sign up to follow the blog.
Videos are still available this week for $20. If you would like to purchase one please have your dancer bring in a check or cash. DVD’s are available at www.pointedvd.com for $25. In addition, we are also taking last minute orders for tee shirts for $12. The tee shirts are black with the poster image on front. Information about show photography will be available soon.
Congratulations to all the seniors! Best of luck and thank you for being a part of the North Springs Dance Family!

Today students learned about dance related injuries and prevention during class. Mandy Blackmon is a physical therapist specializing in dance and performing arts medicine. Meghan Keen is a third year doctoral student from Emory University, completing a 2-semester directed study in dance medicine with Dr. Blackmon. Together, they will present a workshop to the North Springs High School dance department on the topic of preventing injuries. They will also discuss nutrition, overall wellness, and conditioning to strengthen dance-specific muscles.

Special Thanks to Gallim Dance. We would also like to thank our partners in Education Rialto Center for the Arts for our visiting artists during 6th and 7th period.
Founded in 2007, Gallim Dance is a New York-based contemporary dance company dedicated to creating and performing original work by Andrea Miller, nurturing the careers of young artists, and stimulating the imagination of a diverse international audience. Miller’s work embodies fearless physicality, grounded by deep humanity and expressed through the madness and joy of the imagination. Gallim quickly caught the attention of the dance community with its visceral movement style, resonant imagery, and award-winning ensemble of dancers. The company performs for over 15,000 audience members annually in many premier local, national, and international venues. In 2011, the company was featured on the cover of Dance Magazine. Gallim was honored for movement innovation at a 2012 TEDx conference. In 2012, Gallim Dance moved into permanent studio and office space in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, from which it hosts arts and outreach programming for the greater Clinton Hill and New York community.
The dancers did a wonderful job last night performing in the Black History Program 2013. A special thank you to Krystal Davis for leading the path and too Alexandra Mannings and Brianna English for their wonderful choreography. The whole program was a success! NSCHS is full of talented students.
