DanceFest on the Plaza

By Ola Topczewska, Crimson Staff Writer

On Saturday, a collection of Harvard dancers will perform in front of the Science Center in the Arts First tent. Through this free, four-hour event, Arts First aims to showcase the diversity of dance at Harvard. Performers include the South Asian dance troupe Harvard Bhangra, the Harvard Ballet Company, Harvard Ballroom Dance Team, the Ethereals, Corcairdhearg: Harvard College Irish Dancers, Mainly Jazz Dance Company, Asian-American Dance Troupe, and TAPS, a Harvard step and tap group.

Elena M. Pepe ’13, who dances with TAPS, says the group will be performing a dance to “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele, which they performed recently at their spring performance showcase. “We look forward to this event every year,” Pepe says. “It’s fun to perform in front of community members with other dancer groups from Harvard in a public space, and to be part of a bigger event. People come see us who would otherwise not see us dance.”
