Bouand’s Last Dance?Posted: June 22, 2012
Thank you for supporting and attending Bouand performances for the past seven years. We have enjoyed the ride, made some beautiful performances, grown as artists, and hopefully touched some hearts and minds in the process. However, Bouand will go on indefinite hiatus starting this week. I welcome any further communications via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish to convey my immense gratitude to so many people who have made Bouand possible over the years.
