The Winter Dance Performance got the audience into the holiday spirit.
Grier Dancers wowed the audience with their Winter Dance Performance on Friday, December 4th at 3:00pm in the Dance Building. Dancers showcased a variety of dance styles including moving contemporary pieces, hip-hop, jazz, ballet, and tap. One especially upbeat number, Lady Gaga's Born This Way, inspired some toe-tapping by members of the audience.
The dancers had the opportunity to perform some of the choreography and techniques they developed after working with master dance instructors during Grier's Dance Gala this November.
