Sarabande–a Tufts dance troupe specializing in ballet, jazz, and modern styles–performed its fall show, “A Night at the Barre,” on November 15 and 17. The show featured ten dances performed and choreographed by members of the group, as well as guest performances by a variety of other dance groups, including Tufts Dance Collective, Spirit of Color, and Tufts Tap Ensemble, among several others.
But when Tufts’ Blackout Step Team couldn’t perform at the show, Sarabande showed the Tufts community that they’re more than a dance troupe focused on ballet, modern, and jazz. Yessenia Rivas, A14, along with two fellow Sarabande members, took the stage as “Black Swan Step Team” and added a special twist to the dance genre Blackout is so well known for.

A little known secret on the hill is that the some of the best dance groups host dance classes for the Tufts community. These “open dances” are choreographed and taught by student dancers in different dance groups and generally encompass the style of the group. Some dance groups like SOC even feature their open dance in their end of the semester show! If dancing with the stars wasn’t enough motivation to check out these classes, watch the final outcome of learning a dance from a Sarabande choreographer:
