I wore the pants. I wear the pants and it's this great experience where you have this community that is your class and the classes around you. And then you get to add to that with all these other alums who have shared the same awesome experience. Sara: The network is really incredible and super important and very much a part of what it means to be a Bates dancer and in that community
