LOOK AT OUR BABIES! Keiko Thompson We are proud Founding Captains! Kelly Ortiz Shanice Lawrence

I am SUPER proud of you all!!! Go A-LIST!!!

Dear A&F, the code is for 25% OFF not $25.00 tickets! This makes a huge difference for the pockets of many who wished to come out and support the Steppers/ see the show. Please update your correspondence! I called the Box office and confirmed this information.

The “competition” left much to be desired from a “thrown together feel” to throwing fairness to the wind, by letting the audience choose the winner between A-List and another HS team. They wanted to avoid ilooking like LaG was “favorite” so they told MC Johnathan to leave the stage while the “vote” took place. They called A-List to perform a mere 2 days in advance and when the team arrived they barely got a chance for sound check or staging. This was evidenced by the sound team screwing up their music. Needless to say, with few supporters in the audience, this wasn’t A-List’s competition to win. What they did get was an opportunity to network, be seen and learn to take a loss— that even when a competition is rigged by adult ineptitude— you can come out on top. Let your “losses” be gains! A-List, this mom is super proud of you! What you have gained from this experience beats $500 bucks any day! You will see!!!

BUT YAAASSSS!!! Go A-LIST!!! My Baby is Co-Captain!!! Kaÿ Marïe

Having the alumni of these schools supporting students today makes that sense of community even stronger.

Too bad California didn't have the insight to have LA! students sing at the Grammy - the real thing! It was nice to see Ms. Copeland as the featured dancer.

I’m in love with this song, but this performance was just ok for me.. sorry 😐

The choir was amazing. Common was amazing. The band was amazing. The soloists? Not great... I didn’t feel the passion from them...

The movie version was better, true!

Chills. Tears. Every time. The impact of performance.

Yes yes yes !

RIP Jonathan Strasser. This brings back such memories of PA

Traci Parnell-Redding...I heard you and Eric...no body else could hit that note! 🙂

Alyceson Weinfeld-Reyman: lets go!!!

Congratulations to M&A '48 alumna Audrey Flack - subject of the award winning documentary "Queen of Hearts: Audrey Flack."
The film was the winner of the Long and Mattone Audience Award at the Hamptons Doc Fest, as well as the festival’s Art & Inspiration Award.
Directed by Deborah Shaffer and Rachel Reichman, the 75-minute film chronicles the life of artist Audrey Flack, following her trailblazing life as an Abstract Expressionist in the 1950s to her successful career as the sole female Photorealist in the 1970s, to her monumental sculptures of recent decades.

I miss Mr. Strasser, still the best conductor I've ever had the pleasure to play with. Rest in Peace Maestro.

FAME, though shot at Performing Arts and in other authentic locations, was a realistic view of life at the High School of Las Vegas Floor Shows.

So honored to have received the Father Fame award in 2012

I was in the movie as an extra and playing violin in this scene. One fun summer!!

They are still this great!
