The Sanctify hip hop dance company will present a college-themed performance Friday and Saturday.
Sanctify will take the audience through the life of a typical college student and will include choreography depicting spiritual growth, waking up for 8 a.m. classes, the freshman 15 and relationship statuses.
Sanctify dance crew member, sophomore Alex Hill, said the performance will be very unique.
“It will include some of everything,” Hill said. “Some of the dances are funny and others are fast paced or slow and cool, so it will be a great dynamic of the different styles of hip hop along with contemporary dances, so we’re really excited.”
This will be the third and final performance for Sanctify this year as they performed during homecoming in the fall, Ethnos earlier this spring and will finish up this weekend.
The performance will include music from different artists including Hillsong United, Beyoncé, T.I., Ciara, Rick Ross, Starley, and Chance the Rapper.
Each dance number will include a group of the Sanctify members as well as one who choreographed the dance. Sanctify dance crew member, senior Mari-Bree Lowe said all the work is done by the students themselves and there is no specific instructor.
“We basically coach ourselves,” Lowe said. “We have two sponsors, but mainly we instruct ourselves and make up dances that we like.”
The performance will begin at 7 p.m. both nights in Cullen auditorium and tickets will be $5.
