With live music from Gerry Rempel Jazz Syndicate, and special performances by company dancers Hannah, Krislyn, and Alanna (“Illumination”) and Justin and Leanne (“My Ghost”), it was lovely evening for BFan’s supporters to get together and celebrate its fabulous Italy tour— and the upcoming NEW LEGENDS Hult Center season!

Every one enjoyed complimentary wine tasting; yummy hors d’oeuvres, and no one could stop talking about the dessert! Larry’s Cupcake Café blew us away.

We also took this evening as a chance to say farewell to one of our beloved company dancers, Alanna Fisher, whom we wish the best of luck to all of her future endeavors as she moves back to California to be closer to family. We will miss her so much.

Also happening this week, our trusty interns have been working hard at preparing BFan’s season brochures! Keep an eye out for one in your mailbox, or double-check to make sure you’re on our mailing list– subscribe here!
