administrative notes
Sabela Grimes, Hip Hop artist from LA, will be Guest Artist in the department for all of Winter Quarter. More information on his background and interests will be coming out soon.

During his residency he will be choreographing for Dance Uptown and teaching 2 sections of Hip Hop; one is 611.06 (4140) during the 10:30 major technique time and the other is 201.06 (26617) Advanced Hip Hop on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-6pm.

In addition to the 13 dancers chosen as cast in his Uptown piece, there is room for 12 majors in 611.06. A sign-up sheet will go up Tuesday morning at 9am and come down Friday at 10:30. Priority will be given to those graduating the soonest.

The 201.06 MW at 4:30 has been added so more majors will have the opportunity to work with Sabela. In order to register for this class, you will need to bring a completed permission to enroll form to MKB. If you have questions, see MKB.
