Mount Union College Dance Team To Hold Charity Dance Invitational
April 15, 2010
Dancing to Save Lives is the name of the charity dance invitational that the Mount Union College Dance Team will hold on Sunday, April 1 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the Mount Union college gymnasium.
Organized by senior dance team member Jessica Nola, a biology major from Industry, PA, the goal of the event is to collect donations for Relay for Life.
Four other schools will be participating in the event including Heidelberg College, Hiram College, Marietta College and Kennedy Catholic High School from Hermitage, PA.
The event is free and open to the public, although donations for Relay for Life are welcomed and appreciated.
'I hope that Dancing to Save Lives will become an annual event for the younger team members to carry on through the years,' said Nola.
Mount Union's Dance Team provides entertainment at Purple Raider home basketball games and various other events on campus in an effort to promote spirit throughout the year. This year's team, made up of 17 members, is captained by senior Kristy Palmeri, a biology major from Northfield Village and junior Lauren Klaas, a psychology major from Berea.
In addition to the charity dance invitational, Mount Union's Dance Team also performed this year at the Quicken Loans Arena during pre-game of a Cleveland Cavaliers contest and at Mount Union Night at a Youngstown Steelhounds game.
