"I dance because it’s a bridge that crosses culture and relationship. Dance has the ability to speak a message that might not be heard or desired to be heard otherwise." - Lorianne Barclay

It is with much bittersweet emotion that we announce the conclusion of Lead Artist Lauren Ader-Cumpston's final season with Ballet 5:8. With much gratitude, we want to thank Lauren for devoting over five years of her performing career - and so much grace and passion - to Ballet 5:8, our mission, and our audiences. Lauren will be dearly missed! Nonetheless, we are joyful to be able to send her and her husband Evan off, with faith in the goodness of the Lord's plan, as they move to Texas in order for Evan to complete his residencies as a medical doctor >> PLEASE JOIN US in thanking Lauren and post a comment below.

"Blessing - this season has been such a whirlwind of experiences, and it’s crazy to look back on the numerous performances we’ve given and the many places we’ve traveled to - and to think, all this happened within the last 8 months!"
