BLAST Show 2014 Cast List

Hello dancers,

Thank you to everyone who came and auditioned for the BLAST spring show, it was such a pleasure to see everyone’s enthusiasm about dance! Unfortunately, we had to make some difficult casting decisions due to limited space in the show. Please check the attached document to see our cast list. If you did not make the cast, please do not feel discouraged from dancing or participating in other BLAST activities. Our organizations is very large with many facets, so there are still many ways to be involved (such as taking our classes, or attending our social dancing events!).

If you have made the cast, you will be contacted by email shortly.

Best,
Sherry & Sofi
