  • Poetry for Fall

Dance team hosts app-themed showcase at Stroh Center


During its Man Crush Monday segment, Elem3nt changed costumes during a guest performance and returned to dance to Alicia Keys’ “Fire We Make” on Saturday night.

Instagram came to life Saturday night at the Stroh Center.

Elem3nt Dance Team hosted its second annual spring showcase featuring Kent State University, the University of Toledo and Dance for a Difference.

“We picked Instagram [as the theme] because it is a social network that is booming,” said Kenzia Reynolds, president of Elem3nt.

All of the dances were broken up into days. First there was Sanctified Sunday where dancers performed to the songs “Alabaster Box” by CeCe Winans and “He Wants It All” by Forever Jones.

Next was Man Crush Monday where Elem3nt danced to songs by Beyoncé, Ciara and Alicia Keys. During Man Crush Monday there was a guest performance by the Kent State Dance Team, Fluidity.

The all male dance group Fluidity, met Elem3nt at a dance competition in November. It was there that Elem3nt asked Fluidity to perform at their spring showcase.

“As a team we appreciate this opportunity to come,” said Fluidity dancer, Alex Arrington.

After Man Crush Monday there was Transformation Tuesday before an intermission. Next came Woman Crush Wednesday and Throwback Thursday.

During Throwback Thursday there was a guest performance by Charisma, the dance team from the University of Toledo.

“We are always excited to see the other teams,” said Charisma dancer Mariah Sanders.

The theme is something Charisma dancer Lakay Hunter was excited to see.

“I am most excited to see days about Instagram and [Elem3nt’s] creativity,” she said.

During the sixth day, Fresh/Freestyle Friday, there was a guest performance by Dance for a Difference, a nonprofit organization from Toledo.

The group produces a lot of videos around the country and for every 1,000 views on the video, they donate $100 to a charity, Brad Ley, a Dance for a Difference dancer, said.

“We want to spread a positive message,” he said.

Dance for a Difference employs many different styles like comedy into their performances.

“We are so happy to see that people see what we do,” Ley said.

The final act of the night was Selfie Saturday.

Senior Amber Cullen was at the event because she saw it on Campus Update.

“I wanted to go last year but I couldn’t so I am really excited to be here this year,” she said.

Reynolds said the showcase allows the community to see what Elem3nt has been up to throughout the year.

“We have been preparing all year for this,” she said.

Elem3nt also wanted to do something new.

“This is just for the community. We want to be more involved,” Reynolds said.

Tickets were $7, but they were for a good cause, she said.

“The money will go to us and to our high school mentoring program, Lil Elem3nt,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds said that Lil Elem3nt is a way to get to know people and stay healthy.

Ultimately though, it is about the people that Elem3nt helps.

“We just want to do something to give back to the community,” she said.​
