In winter and spring performances the members danced various roles and participated in community outreach programs by performing at local nursing care facilities.

Guest artists invited to lead workshops for dance education for the dancers included ballerina Jessica Fry McAlister, McTeggart Irish Dancers of Louisiana, and modern dancer and choreographer Lula Elzy.
