Carolina Vibe, a dance group on campus, is impassioned by more than simply entertaining the masses. The dancers care about their Chapel Hill community — specifically, the UNC Children’s Hospital.
Carolina Vibe is hosting their fall showcase this Friday at 8 p.m. at the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History. Admission is free; in lieu of an admissions cost, Carolina Vibe requests that their audience members make a donation to Carolina For The Kids. The organization seeks to provide emotional, medical and financial support for the patients and families served by UNC Children's Hospital.
Carolina Vibe, comprised of over 20 dancers, encourages many styles of dance including lyrical, hip-hop and jazz. They will be performing around eight short pieces incorporating these styles and more.
They practice every Monday and Wednesday to prepare for the fall showcase, which is a teaser for their longer recital in the spring. The show will last around 45 minutes.
UNC senior Kelly Davis, president of Carolina Vibe, knows the importance of community at UNC-Chapel Hill.
