Featured Performances: HB Dancers Will Be Guests at the Youth Advocacy and Leadership Coalition’s Annual Youth Summit

The Contemporary Dance Ensemble students have been invited by HB alumna Kirsten Pianka, to be guest performers at the Youth Advocacy and Leadership Coalition’s (YALC) Annual Youth Summit a​t Cleveland State University on Saturday, November 14th. For eight years, YALC has brought students from Cuyahoga County together to participate in leadership workshops on topics relevant to their lives.

​The HB students (Gina Bompiedi, Aaliyah Daniels, Kristen Ferguson, Akilah Marshall, Jasmine Morris, Cartier Pitts and Claire Xu) will discuss the creative process in their dance “In Search of I AM” through a pecha kucha presentation and also by team-teaching a 45-minute workshop for high school-aged participants. The HB dancers are the featured performers at this year’s event, closing the workshop with their 20-minute performance. If you see them around, give them an extra pat on the back and help me congratulate them for their professionalism, artistry and amazing work ethic!
