This Friday afternoon the university is hosting a festival type thing on the green that showcases various different clubs/activities we have to offer. Both the Juggling Club and the Ballroom Dance Team will be doing performances. Ballroom is easy enough to figure out what to do, but I am at a loss as to what to do for my Juggling Club performance. Anthony and Pete are the only two besides me who have shown interest in performing and they are both straight up jugglers - I am the only one in th... read moreSun, April 27, 2008 - 8:30 PM permalink - 4 comments

I would also like to say that Doug and I won first place in the Fun Dance - Anything Goes Polka competition. We almost collapsed on the dance floor because we were so exhausted from doing the uber-polka for two rounds and a ridiculously long final round. Our team may not win at International dances. We may not be the best at American dance... read more
I think one of the greatest and most rewarding experiences I have had in my life has been due to being part of the UD ballroom team. There are two gentlemen who are wheelchair bound who come to our activities and dance with us. I always admired their spirit and how they and their partners have overcome the disability to do something doctors would have said impossible. Granted, they will never be able to dance like a person with use of legs, but what they *can* accomplish is truly amazing and ... read moreSat, February 16, 2008 - 12:16 AM permalink - 5 comments
