Primo Dance Troupe presents: Never Stop Dancing

  • UIC Student Center East, Illinois Room (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Primo Dance Troupe is holding its annual "Never Stop Dancing" showcase Saturday, April 9th. Our goal is to express to youth the importance of participating in the arts, such as dance; no matter what stage of life you're at, you should continue to be involved in the activities that make you feel great, to maintain your passions, and to "never stop dancing," in all aspects of the phrase. 

We are unique because we aren't affiliated with any cultural organization, style, denomination or any other demographic. We are a coed group of dancers bringing together many different styles and embracing the diversity of Chicago dance. There is no other event in Chicago that brings together professional and college companies/crews free of admission, for purely performance based interests, no competition and in a judgment-free atmosphere. We want accessibility for dance by welcoming anyone to come be a part of this amazing, creative community.

Midwest Filipino American Summit: University of Minnesota Twin Cities

"Why Not Us? Why Not Now?" is the theme of this year's Midwest Filipino American Summit and it is a call to action for our entire generation.

Think of a time when you felt passionately about a cause, project, or movement, but ended up telling yourself that you could not make a difference by yourself.

Think of a time when you felt a rush of motivation to make your life better or to make your community a better place, but you did not capitalize on your overwhelming excitement in that moment.

Our goal is to give you the tools, connections, and motivation to take advantage of all that you have around you to truly have a lasting impact by the time you leave Minnesota.
