Our week kicked off with a new opportunity for our Student Leadership team to have a mid-season review session with our clinician, Mr. Wansley! During this time, they were able to reflect on all that has transpired in the past two-plus months and how we can continue to grow as a group. This was an outstanding opportunity for our leadership members to challenge each other as well as themselves to better understand the needs that we have moving forward to achieve our goals. Very proud of this session and the positive outcome!

We had a great week in the BDMB that included learning the last few pages of our show and being able to perform the music from the full show this week! The kids pushed and persevered. This was a huge success for us! Looking forward to adding some nuance and direction within the show to begin bringing it home for our audiences! #iegyb

Big week for the BDMB! We are excited about putting our full show on display this week! We have a great week planned to build up our performers and prep them for the task ahead! Very excited to see this all come to life! It is important that we all know and understand the schedule this week – it is going to be incredible! Can’t wait to see Big Blue in action on Thursday and the BDMB live in performance on Saturday at Tarpon! See you there! #iegyb
