Summer is finally here (or at least it feels like it)! Baran Dance will be on hiatus until early Fall, but that doesn’t mean we’re just relaxing by the pool with Mojitos (ok, sometimes). Here’s what we’re up to this Summer…
CAREY’S GETTING MARRIED!
A HUGE congratulations to Carey Gates on tying the knot this July to the love of your life, Bobby French! Fun fact… Carey and Bobby met after the very first Baran Dance show, at the introduction of mutual friend Lauren Bickerstaff!
LAUREN’S HAVING A BABY!
Speaking of Lauren, we could not be more thrilled to welcome the next Baran Dance baby to the world! That’s right, Lauren and Josh are expecting their first bundle of love this Fall. You better rock that belly this Summer, girl. Congrats to the Bicks!
BEN IS IN MAINE
Ben Henley is spending the Summer at the Maine State Music Theatre, where he is rehearsing 12-15 hours a day, performing in five shows, and earning points towards his Actor’s Equity Card. He’s already made some great friends and connections (because, he’s Ben.) We are wishing you all the best! (But, come back.)
AUDREY’S GOING TO SCHOOL!
Last but not least, Audrey will be starting the Masters of Fine Arts in Dance program at Hollins University this Summer. She’ll be spending five weeks on the beautiful campus of Hollins in Roanoke, VA, then traveling to Germany for three weeks to study at the Forsythe Company Studio and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt! Wish her luck, or… Viel Gluck!
Of course we all have fun and exciting things planned for the Summer, and hope you do to! Don’t forget to suppot your local theaters, companies, and artists during these dog days. Stay safe and cool, Charlotte, and we’ll see you in the Fall with some surprises!
