The Otter Dance Team will host a Hip-Hop workshop on Friday, March 2. The event is open to all California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) students and community members.
“We will start off with a cardio warm-up, some stretches, and a little strength conditioning,” said Maddy Maurer, captain of the dance team. “Then we will get into the dance and teaching the choreography.”
The choreography was done by a first-year dance team member, Erika Collins.
“It is typical for a dance team to host workshops, and we are trying to grow into that mold,” said Maurer about the purpose of the event. She also said this is a good fundraiser for the team.
“It is also a good way for people who are interested in joining the team to meet all of us, to interact with us before auditions,” said Maurer, who is in her second year with the team.
The Otter Dance Team performs at several sporting events on campus each year. This year there are 11 team members, but they are looking to grow.
Auditions for the 2018-2019 academic year will be April 7.
The workshop is 2-5 p.m. in the CSUMB Dance Studio, Mountain Hall, Building 84, Suite F. Pre-event tickets are $5, and they are $7 at the door.
