Events

Feeling isolated? Missing your friends? Feel the need to dance it out?

Join our weekly “Dance Community Happy Hour” series, where you can kick back and connect with your peers through dance and good music! A mix between an open practice session and a party, this virtual space will welcome new hip-hop dance artists each week as “party hosts” to create a lively, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. Music will be mixed by a live DJ to keep the party going. No dance experience necessary. Come join our community!

The Dance Community Happy Hour on October 11 is hosted by Toyin Sogunro.

These events are free and open to all University students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Princeton alumni who wish to participate should email Cindy Rosenfeld: cr17@princeton.edu.
