Alumni Update from Mina Vahedi and Julie Gratz, Class of 2007; Roni Shani, Class of 2009
I hope everything is great back at the studio! Right now I’m on my semester abroad in Sydney, Australia. Hopefully in a few weeks I’m going to start going to master classes with the Sydney Dance Company. Back at Boston University, I dance with a hip-hop dance team called Vibes, along with Roni Shani and Julie Gratz, two other JLDC alums! It’s so cool to be able to have danced with them through high school and now in college. We perform at a ton of different venues around the Boston area, particularly at other colleges and universities. Also, every spring we go to the Main Event Competition hosted by Fr3sh, a hip hop crew that was on ABDC last season! There were some incredible teams there, and it was awesome to be able to share the stage with them! I included a video of us performing at the Main Event, and the poster from our own annual show that we had last March. I hope to see all of you soon, best of luck! -Mina Vahedi
