    Hi Cecile, saw you on twitter as we follow some of the same people. Wanted to plug (no shame!) our incredible summer intensive to you and your readers… great opportunity to be taught for a full week from stars of SYTYCD. We’re located in maryland, maybe 45 minutes outside of DC.

    the website for our intensive is http://www.soyouthinkyoucanjamz.com Nothing like this has been put together in the Maryland/DC area as far as I know.

    thanks for taking the time to look!

    Hi Cecile!

    LOVE your blog. This is such a great thing you’re doing. I wanted to introduce myself as someone fairly new to the DC dance community and as CityDance’s new External Relations Manager. I also wanted to share our new calendar we have up on our site – you and other DC dancers will be able to find info about our upcoming auditions and events there:

    Thanks for all this great info! Let me know if you have any q’s about anything on our calendar. It is definitely a work in progress – more to come!

    Hi Cecile, I noticed that you haven’t posted in a long time and your twitter says you’ve relocated to New York. Anyways, Company E has a new location in DC and it’s called Dance Loft 14. We’re having some great events coming up and I’m sure you still have a large DC Dancer community outreach. There are some great opportunities coming up with Company E such as our summer tune-up, for more information feel free to visit http://www.companye.org

    Thanks so much! Happy blogging.

      Hi! Yes, I live in NYC now and am no longer updating this site. I heard about Dance Loft 14 though. Very exciting. Hope all is well in DC.
