This group is full of students of different ages and backgrounds, who get together to learn a little about some culture and dance to songs from all around the world. We perform at events around campus and the International Bazaar in the spring. We have recently performed a K-Pop medley at Culture Fest here on campus, which was so fun and a great experience for incoming freshman. You will not only gain new friends, but a supporting dance family as well! If you have any questions about this organization, feel free to contact any of the leaders.
