This past Sunday, UNC Kamikazi, a co-ed hip-hop dance team, hosted a three-hour workshop in the Underground of the Carolina Union.
The team invited two local dance instructors, Eunique Browder and Anushri Adhia, to teach at the workshop. Both instructors danced in college: Adhia is a former member of Kamikazi, while Browder performed with UNC-Wilmington’s Physical Graffeeti for four years.
“It’s to help our team members grow by bringing in teachers from the area or other teams,” said co-director Laura Killian. “It’s also to introduce dance to the community because anyone can come to it. It’s just a good way to spread dance.”
Killian said that while members of Kamikazi are required to attend, the biannual event has attracted at least 50 people in past semesters.
“It provides a safe space for people to express themselves and to grow at their own pace and gives people the opportunity to meet other dance community members and get connected,” said design chair Sophie Swift.
