Voices: Arts for Social Change

Voices' mission is to empower university students to use the performing arts for positive social change through community outreach and student engagement activities. We hope to spread awareness about the power of the arts for social change, help people discover creative ways to contribute to the world, and empower people to make their artistic skills more meaningful. We gave this group the name Voices because we believe everyone has a voice, whether that be through music, writing, theatre, dance, visual art, or circus arts, and we hope to inspire everyone to use that voice for positive change in their community.

SEE Presents: America's Best Dance Crew Winner: The Elektrolytes!

Student Entertainment Events Presents: ABDC Winner The Elektrolytes
“America’s Best Dance Crew” winners to perform and hold meet and greet

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Student Entertainment Events is very excited to announce “Dance Daze featuring The Elektrolytes,” a dance performance with the winners of the 7th season of “America’s Best Dance Crew” and three University of Maryland student dance groups: Prima Dolls, Phunktions and Dynamics. The event will take place at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 in the Hoff Theater of the Stamp. This event is free and non-ticketed, and is also open to members of the public.

The Elektrolytes are an all-male dance crew formed in Arizona in 2009. The group auditioned for “America’s Best Dance Crew” three times before being selected -- you’ve likely seen them performing on its seventh season last year. The Elektrolytes have won numerous other competitions, including the Hip Hop International USA 2011 Adult Division in 2011, after which they went on to finish seventh in the World Hip Hop International competition.  The group aims to promote dance as a positive learning environment for all individuals, regardless of race, culture, gender, sexuality, body shape, religion, or any other factor. Their fun, insanely coordinated show is one not to be missed!

After the event, the group will be available for a meet and greet to chat with the audience and take photographs.

Erasable Inc.'s (Late) Saint Patrick's Day Show

Once upon a time there were snakes and potatoes wreaking havoc until St. Patrick, the king leprechaun, rode into Ireland on a rainbow, distracted the villainous creatures with a rainstorm of shamrocks, and knocked them out with a pot of gold to the head. And that, children, is the story of St. Patrick's Day.

Join your favorite group of part-Irish ragamuffins for a night of Guinness, blarney, and of course, free improv.
