We are gearing up for Expressions 2016, BSA's popular annual show featuring our students. A vital fundraiser for the school and TWIGS, Expressions proceeds help to provide for everything from performances and scholarships to master classes, cultural outings, and supplies. Over the course of a long weekend and three great events, we'll welcome 2,000 guests to the school to see our students perform and hope to raise close to half a million dollars to support them.

Expressions events include a Saturday Gala on March 5; two family performances on Sunday, March 6; and a cocktail party for the business community and friends sponsored by BSA's Stage One|FANS on Tuesday, March 8. Click here to purchase tickets. (Please note there is a waiting list for Saturday's event as of 2/3/16). Or to download a reply card to reserve classes for Saturday and/or tickets for Sunday & Tuesday, click here.

This year we are delighted to welcome Linda Weinberg and Alexander Baer as Chairs of the gala event and are grateful for their support and guidance. They are joined by Bhek and Allison Simmons as Chairs of Sunday's family performances and Morgan Gilligan and Jennifer Langford as Chairs of Tuesday's event.

Expressions is BSA's primary source of annual funds for the school and sponsors make all the difference in helping us to reach our goals. Special thanks to our 2016 Presenting Sponsors -- M&T Bank; Robert E. Meyerhoff and Rheda Becker; and War Horse -- and to all of the generous contributors who support BSA. For a full list of 2016 sponsors, click here. There's still time if you'd like to join this wonderful group!  Simply email Carter Polakoff at cpolakoff@bsfa.org for details. If you'd like to make a gift in honor of Expressions to our annual fund, click here. THANK YOU!

"I was an inner-city kid, and the school exposed me for the first time to a number of cultures. That helped to break down biases. From 8 to 4, it was our own little utopia."
