All around UNC's campus Tuesday, Arts Everywhere will be hosting the Dorrance Dance and Indi Cowie Footwork Battles, which is an event showcasing the art of an award-winning tap company and an international soccer freestyler.
These Footwork Battles will begin at 12 p.m. on Tuesday in Davis Library, the Carolina Union, the Undergraduate Library and South Building.
Arts Everywhere is an initiative that began in 2016 with Chancellor Carol L. Folt’s vision that arts should be accessible to everyone at UNC. Since then, Arts Everywhere has been steadily growing and launched an app Monday.
Rachel Ash, associate director for Arts Everywhere, said the program “wanted to do something really playful that made sure as many people got to experience the dancers' energy, vibrancy and amazing talent.”
The event is also a chance for people to see how the arts are intersectional. Indi Cowie’s freestyle soccer skills are just as much of an intricate art as the tap company’s dance numbers, which the event will highlight.
