Also on Saturday March 18 was Choom Boom’s first showcase. I have been a part of the Bi-Co’s one and only K-Pop dance club since my first year, and it’s amazing to see how far we have come as a group. Having our own showcase was only just a dream maybe 2 years ago. As more students joined the club, we gained more establishment as a dance group.

This weekend, I performed in my last Fall Student Dance Concert (FSDC) of my undergraduate career. Although I was only in one dance piece, the night was memorable and I will miss being a part of such an inclusive dance community. The best part about FSDC is the variety and depth of talent in the Bi-Co student choreography and dancing. Independent choreographers and dance clubs always bring their all for a packed audience in Marshall Auditorium. I performed in a Choom Boom K-Pop G-Friend medley of Navillera and Rough.

This weekend October 21-22 is Family Weekend at Bryn Mawr! Parents, family members, siblings, and friends unite to sit in on lectures, attend faculty talks, observe campus life, and participate in special activities like s’mores and acapella, movie night, and arts and crafts. My parents drove in from Ridgewood, NJ to do ALL of those. They claim that because it’s my last year at Bryn Mawr, it’s their last chance to experience Family Weekend (they’ve attended every year except my 2nd year). Continue reading →
On Tuesday March 1, the Asian Students Association finally held their annual culture show. The show was originally scheduled for Friday January 22, but surprise Snowstorm Jonas forced it to be postponed. Themed “Lost & Found,” ASA aimed to explore Asian/Asian American issues of race, culture, and reinvented identity through a variety of empowering performances.
Last night was the Bi-Co Fall Student Dance Concert, and I could not be more proud of all the talented dancers/choreographers/lighting/sound/stage managers and thankful for the support of the audience. According to the co-directors Joy and Kyra, this show had the most pieces, the most variety, and the biggest crowd yet (even the balcony was filled!).
The months of hard practice are finally coming to an end. The Bi-Co Fall Student Dance Concert is this Saturday, November 21th 8pm at Haverford College’s Marshall Auditorium! The FSDC is a platform for independent student choreographers and dance groups within the Bi-Co to showcase their latest works. This year, there are over 20 different pieces!
I’ve been participating since last year. I love performing whenever there’s a chance and would have participated my first year as well, but I missed the deadline to join. Last year, I was in 3 dances. I adapted choreography from the K-Pop dance “What’s Your Name” by 4Minute for the Choom Boom K-Pop Dance Club and participated as a dancer for 2 of my friend Joy’s pieces. This year, I am only in 2 pieces: Choom Boom and Joy’s piece. I would usually be leading a Choom Boom piece as well, but that’s all the time I could commit this year. I wish I had more time to dance in more pieces.
