Students dancing for tuition

BY JEREMIAH JONES

As college tuition continues to rise nationwide, students everywhere are turning to non-tradtitional ways to help curve the cost of college. This past Friday, Dec. 11, the Howard University community filled the seats of Ira Aldridge theatre for a cause supporting arts and education.  With the purchase of the $7 tickets, all proceeds and sales went toward student choreographer Bre Seals educational fund.

Bre Seals, a senior dance major  and emerging choreographer at the university, teamed up with the Friends of Theatre and Dance at Howard University to premiere “Incandescence: A Choreography Showcase”. The showcase, which has been three years in the making, featured seven original choreographic pieces by Seals inspired by her life. 

This marked the inaugural event for the Friends of Theatre and Dance at Howard University, who plan to continue work with students to secure opportunities for artistic exposure and securing finances for their education.
