Dear Dance Families, Students, and Fellow Dance Artists,
We hope this newsletter finds you in good health and thoroughly caught up with adjusting to our return to life together and all things LACHSA related. We are now well into the rhythm of life at LACHSA as we enter our first full month of studies. Your dancers have been hard at work stretching themselves academically, socially, and of course, in their training in the studios. It’s been a joy getting to know our small, but mighty, freshmen class, seeing the camaraderie of our sophomore class, working with the sheer energy of our junior class, and last, but not least, mentoring our beautiful senior dance majors in this last leg of their four years at LACHSA.
In Collaboration,
Fiona & Alexa

WATER needed:

We are in need of bottled water and emergency snacks. With drinking fountains down, not a day goes by when our dancers run out of water. Help us keep our dancers hydrated by donating a palette of water. Healthy snacks are welcome, too! 
If you'd like to help, please bring water to the Dance Office in Rm. 207.
