From traditional cultural dance to modern hip-hop, “Eastbound” presented a full array of entertainment to its audience this Saturday. The show, presented by the Asian American Dance Troupe, celebrated another year of dance with over 100 participants, which is one of the largest group of performers to date. The captivating dances and spellbinding precision may have absorbed everyone’s attention, but this Roving Reporter still attempted to converse with performers and audience members.
