Stellar Levy ’15 wants you to pop, lock, and drop it looowwwww:

Terpsichore Auditions!

What show combines football players in Hawaiian print short shorts, Beyonce, body paint, Rihanna, b-boying, tap, jazz, contemporary dance, insane light shows, and zombies sometimes?

One word – Terp.

Terpsichore is a show that happens every semester for any students who want to dance or choreograph, regardless of previous training. These auditions are for the entire Terpsichore show; pieces range from anything from tap and contemporary to ballet and hiphop…and always something fun in between.

ANYONE can choreograph and EVERYONE dances. If you want to choreograph for the show, bring a short excerpt of your dance, or something similar to the dance you will create, and some MUSIC (on an ipod please)!

Nathan Shane ’13 wants to pick your brain about music:

If you have learned classical music at some point in your life, or you are learning it now, then please take this survey! By conducting this survey, I hope to gather information for my undergraduate thesis, the topic of which is improvisation in classical music education. I will ask you questions about your music education, music in your life today, and your thoughts on improvisation. If you have 30 minutes, I would appreciate your participation a lot!
