University of Richmond dance teams Embody and Block Crew are hosting a joint showcase titled Emblock at 9 p.m. in The Pier on April 14. In anticipation of the show, I sat down with Brian Li, RC ‘17, and Tia McArtis, WC ‘17, who are the respective captains for Block Crew and Embody, and asked them some questions about their time at UR and in the dance community.

Change is hard, right? Trying something new can be frightening. We often choose to stick with favorite activities, words and behaviors that feel safe simply out of familiarity. We, individually or culturally, are accustomed to such safety. These metaphorical safety nets often get labeled as “traditional” in contrast to unfamiliar practices or ideologies that get marked as “modern.”

I seem to be one of the few women at Ring Dance who voluntarily walked alone during the ceremonial procession.
I want to begin by sharing with you my gratitude to the Westhampton student leaders and colleagues who organized this year’s Junior Ring Dance. Each of them worked so hard to plan this year’s dance, an event meant to celebrate the academic accomplishments of our junior women and their friendships with one another.
Upfront, I'm not against Ring Dance existing or women making the choice to participate. I encourage those who feel that the evening means something to them to show up, if they can.

(Yes, this is me throwing my hat in the ring after this weekend’s controversy with the new ceremony rules).

Security at Ring Dance this year will be tighter than in the past because of damage to The Jefferson Hotel at last year's event, and everyone attending must be registered on the guest list.
Salsa, singing and samosas. What could be better? All of these and more were at the 2014 closing ceremony for International Month which was held Nov. 13 in the Carole Weinstein International Center Commons.

I am writing this article not only as a leader on this campus, but also as a student of both Westhampton College and the University of Richmond. I am writing this article not only as a student who has heard from both sides of the story, but also as someone who understands the criticisms of the proposed changes to Ring Dance.
