Students will show off their dancing skills Thursday night at Winthrop’s own version of “So You Think You Can Dance,” hosted by Dance in Motion, a subcommittee of the Associate of Ebonites (AOE). The event will serve as a fundraiser for AOE.
The competition will take place at 8 p.m. in Tillman Auditorium and is open to the public. The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. There is a $1 admission fee and AOE is asking attendees to bring a canned good.
A preselected group of Winthrop students, who auditioned three weeks ago, will dance to the styles of lyrical, contemporary, jazz, modern, hip-hop and break dancing. The top three contestants will win a gift card for various shops and businesses on campus.
AOE’s mission is to raise black awareness for Winthrop and for the Rock Hill area. The money raised will be used for costumes for the annual AOE recital to be held on April 13. For more information contact Grace Tucker at 843-557-8946.
