Pub goers gathered last Wednesday night in celebration of drinks, friends and most importantly, dance.
Presented as a collaboration between by The
Pub and KSUA, Dance Church is a monthly dance hosted by The Pub that has special songs and videos centered on a theme. With the horribly cold weather, KSUA decided on a beach theme and handed out lei s to the dancers.
Pub Manager Heather Kraemer discovered the idea of Dance Church from a conversation with a friend who went to different workshops in California. At this place they would have special Dance Churches where the organizers would play music for an hour and people would dance. “It’s not supposed to be something that is like over the top, it’s just a couple hours where people that enjoy dancing to come and dance,”
“Dance Church is different than other dances on campus because it focuses on a relaxed atmosphere where everyone can leave their inhibitions at home and just have fun dancing,” said Brady Gross, KSUA’s Music Director, in comparing Dance church to other dances on campus. “More focused on just great classic dance tracks and sweet moves.”
UAF student Yuzhun Evanoff
enjoyed the atmosphere of The Pub during Dance Church. “I like that it’s not club music, just happy dance music.”
UAF Alumi Nick Hautman also enjoyed Dance Church because “
you can usually find good company.”
As a once a month event, the next Dance Church is being planned for
the end of February with the tentative theme revolving around dance movie soundtracks.
