Founded in 2010, the Moonlight Dance Crew has made it their mission to create a free, safe space for dancers of any experience level to come out and hone their craft. The dance crew holds an open audition in the beginning of both fall and spring semesters. Next semester, spring auditions begin Monday, Jan. 13 and go through Wednesday, Jan. 15.
Dancers will learn choreography on the first day, review the dance on the second day and finally participate in tryouts on the last day.
Li Zhang, senior and director of Moonlight Hip Hop Dance Crew, said the group’s style is hip-hop with an urban twist.
“It started out within the hip-hop vein, and we’re still hip-hop, but I would say we’re more urban fusion now,” she said.
The dance crew performs frequently around the campus for different charity events, as well as across the East Coast at major dance competitions. The dance crew’s two major events of the year include Journey Into Asia, hosted by the Asian Students Association, and the Prelude Carolinas Urban Dance Competition.
