Choreographer:
Nice guys, nice.

Jennie Sirignano:
People are always asking me, I've bumped into old friends I used to dance with, and

Jennie Sirignano:
they are always asking, "Are you still dancing or did you go to college?"

Jennie Sirignano:
It never seems to be that you can do both.

Jennie Sirignano:
And, I do have friends who are in conservatories or I do have

Jennie Sirignano:
some friends who are now dancing professionally,

Jennie Sirignano:
which scares me to now take class with them,

Jennie Sirignano:
but they are always impressed about how much I dance.

Alexis Morgan:
Everyone in the dance company

Alexis Morgan:
has something that they are good at and that they want to

Alexis Morgan:
show the Princeton community that they can do.

Alexis Morgan:
And I think it's this genuine love and passion for dance that

Alexis Morgan:
really distinguishes diSiac.

Brian Jeong:
All my friends ask me how college is going.

Brian Jeong:
I just spend hours and hours talking about diSiac.

Brian Jeong:
And then they ask me, are you majoring in dance or

Brian Jeong:
something? I'm just like:

Brian Jeong:
"That's what diSiac does for you."

Kahina Haynes:
One of our concerns with choosing "Possession," was that,

Kahina Haynes:
in the beginning, it did seem kind of dark as a theme.

Kahina Haynes:
But I actually really like that because it really pushed our

Kahina Haynes:
choreographers -- our entire company -- to really go outside

Kahina Haynes:
the box. How can we take this theme and

Kahina Haynes:
completely stretch it?

Adam Zivkovic:
We thought that "Possession" really allowed us to do

Adam Zivkovic:
everything that we strive to do in a diSiac show,

Adam Zivkovic:
which is to push ourselves creatively and to challenge

Adam Zivkovic:
ourselves as dancers and artists and to entertain our

Adam Zivkovic:
audience as well.

Adam Zivkovic:
I am really excited about this theme.

Adam Zivkovic:
We've got a really diverse show.

Kahina Haynes:
We've got relationships. We've got love.

Kahina Haynes:
We've got spirit. We've got ...

Adam Zivkovic:
... thieves!

Kahina Haynes:
Thieves! I mean, it's really,

Kahina Haynes:
as Adam said, a really varied show,

Kahina Haynes:
like, variety in the show, which is great.
