PRIDE 2: Dance Competition @ RUTGERS NB

ITS been almost ONE year since the first PRIDE Dance Competition presented by Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, INC and Pi Delta Psi Fraternity, INC. at Rutgers University New Brunswick campus. Excitement for the event has been building since they first announced the event slated for OCTOBER. As well as everyone in the NJ/NYC scene has known since the first announcement, the early target date initially threw most of the dance teams a surprise by how early it was revealed. As a result, most teams were not ready at all to compete leaving only an initial showcase/competition total of only five teams on the October date. Unfortunately (due to some other difficulties), the show was rescheduled to a later (and much more recognizable) date of November — when they actually first unveiled Pride. This SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22nd, PRIDE 2 hits the NJ dance scene bringing back big name competitors such as, E.P.I.C. Motion, SERCis Company, Rutgers Dance Team (RDT), Team Technique, and last year’s champions –Project D Dance Company.

In addition to the established teams, there is new talent on the horizon for this years Pride 2, featuring new to the NJ/NYC scene groups such as: Miracle Project, Outta Kontrol, YFAMD (MD), and Phunktions (UMD).

Despite the atmosphere of competition, its really great to see an explosion of new teams coming out of the wood work. Whether or not there is hype around them, or if a team is good or not shouldn’t be the issue.

The realization should be…DIVERSIFICATION.

It means new ideas and self expression is taking place. It also means that truly our dance community is growing. Give it time and something exceptionally original and unmistakably beautiful to public appeal is bound come from our budding dance community.
