Local Motion, diversity through dance, Feb. 18-21

Local Motion 2002, a celebration of diversity through dance, is being presented by Mathey College Monday through Thursday, Feb. 18-21.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, student dance groups showcase a variety of cultural dance forms in the Mathey Common Room at 6 p.m. These groups include BAC on Monday; Muse, Ballroom Dancing Club and Sympoh on Tuesday; and Ballet Folklorico and Raks Odalisque on Wednesday.

Local Motion will culminate with a breakdance performance by Clyde Evans on Thursday at 9 p.m. in the Frist Multi-Purpose Room. Evans' group was a hit on campus last year.

All members of the Princeton community are invited to this week's events.

The minority affairs advisors of Mathey College are planning Local Motion as part of the Residential College Diversity Program. Dance, as a universal form of expression, knows no language barriers and is thus an effective medium for raising multicultural awareness. Local Motion brings together the rich diversity of Princeton's performing arts arena in hopes of fostering an appreciation for diversity on campus and around the world.
