Tango, salsa and swing!
BLAST – or Northwestern University's Ballroom Latin and Swing Team – took the stage Friday with Kaleidoscope, a themed performance of these three dances. Featuring over 20 first-year dancers, it was the group's biggest show to date.
The show's main focus? Color. Whether from The Wizard of Oz or a bag of skittles, show director Sydney Marcus said rainbows have left their marks on the lives of the dancers – and that something as simple as a pop of color can turn anyone's day around.
"We chose Kaleidoscope as the name because it's not just about the rainbow," Marcus said. "It's about seeing each other, seeing someone’s colors, seeing someone emote through dance and the best way I saw to bring that to life was through color."
