The members of the Improvisation Troupe will be hosting Dancing with the Greeks at 6 p.m.in the Student Union Ballroom.
If you enjoy the competitive atmosphere of smooth and rhythmic steps of a ballroom dance competition, then this event is for you.
The event was founded by the Ballroom Dance Club’s former president Taylor Marie Berry, a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha. She put the competition together as another creative way to raise funds for their organization.
“It was an idea for fundraising,” Andrew Ritfield, President of the Ballroom Dance Club, said.
“We may open that up to more organizations to keep finding ways to make it bigger and better.”
Hosted by Jeffrey Clifford and Isaac Huntington, this 2nd annual competition is centered on teams of four couples from each fraternity or sorority that will be teaming up and performing choreography in either the Jive, the Tango, or the Cha Cha.
The competitors include members from Alpha Sigma Alpha, Delta Chi, Phi Mu, Kappa Alpha Order, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Delta, Sigma Chi, Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Sigma Kappa.
The event will be open to the whole campus with an entry fee of $5 per person.
“We encourage everyone to come,” Ritfield said. “Everyone should enjoy our events and our organization as well.”
While the brothers and sisters donate money, the money along with the entry fee will be put up and 10 percent of the proceeds will go towards the winners and their philanthropy.
“It was an idea for fundraising. We may open that up to more organizations to keep finding ways to make it bigger and better,” Ritfield said.
Although this is an extravagant event, you are encouraged to wear whatever you have as long as you come out and support.
“Wear what you got; really just be there to enjoy the event and see what we are about,” said Ritfeld.
The Ballroom Dance club meets every Friday at 3 and costs only $20 for the whole academic year.
