Adetola Olatunji:
We all realized how much it affected not only the

Adetola Olatunji:
people that we knew in the company, but also our friends, like outside

Adetola Olatunji:
the company -- on campus and back home. So we thought it'd be a good

Adetola Olatunji:
idea to use our dance, and the fact that we already reach out to people

Adetola Olatunji:
through our dance to bring the campus together, to be able to get

Adetola Olatunji:
involved and help out and give back.

Brittany Kelleher:
You know, I'm very fortunate

Brittany Kelleher:

I'm willing to do.

Adam Zivkovic:

these things happen in the world and as college students -- it's like

Adam Zivkovic:
you're kind of you know, like, "How can I possibly help? What can my

Lara Yuan:

Adetola Olatunji:
What it means to me to be able to have my dance company come together and then have other

Adetola Olatunji:
dance companies collaborate with us and be willing to join with us, that's

Adetola Olatunji:
awesome to see that. It doesn't have to be about what dance company

Adetola Olatunji:
you're in, or any of that, we can just forget about all those divides

Adetola Olatunji:
for now and just come together. It means a lot to see that our campus

Adetola Olatunji:
can just really unite for one cause. It's amazing to see that.

Kyle: I'm Kyle Ofori. I'm a freshman in Highsteppers.
