Some of you may remember a tiny tap dancer who performed alongside Nicole Harris in Monkeyhouse's Always, and a day... back in 2004. Her name is Bari Rosenberg and she was just selected by Honor Student magazine (from over a 1000 candidates) to be profiled in their April issue. Is it any wonder that she has been accepted to both MIT and Brown University?
Nicole and I both met Bari while teaching at Impulse Dance Center in Natick, MA when she was quite young. Since then Bari has advanced in to the Repertory level modern, jazz, tap, lyrical and ballet classes, assisted classes (including my beginning modern class for four years) and been chosen for the studio's two elite teen ensembles, Connecting Point Dance Company and TAProject. Currently, she is Nicole's Dance Captain for You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown at Natick High School. Somehow she also manages to squeeze in time to be the student liaison to the School Committee, volunteer at a local soup kitchen, tutor a boy struggling with autism and excel academically. Congratulations Bari, we are so proud of all that you have accomplished.
