Season Ends, Summer Begins

The season has ended. We hope you were part of the Spring Performance audience and witnessed the beautiful dancers and their awesome performance. We introduced some of youngest Lady Leah Lafargue students and said goodbye to some of the LCCB principal dancers. Some of our dancers will move on to full-time employment, some will begin college careers, and others will move up to become principal dancers. With the LCCB Summer Intensive just a few weeks away, the dancers are focusing on relaxation and summer trips.

LCCB New York in June

LCCB Dancers performing New York in June during Spring Performance.


Principal Dancer Ashley Eaves has moved to Houston, Texas. She has worked long and hard to earn her college degree, and she’s excited to transition from student to full-time employee. We hear she begins and ends each day with yoga, Pilates, or some form of exercise. We have a feeling she’ll be back to collaborate with LCCB in the future.

Principal Dancer Margaret Lie performed her Senior Recital in Flute and Piano last evening. She leaves us in awe of her many talents. She dances, plays multiple instruments expertly, and excels at her studies. Margaret will attend Harvard this summer and begin classes at Rice University this fall. We look forward to Margaret’s future successes.
