Highlights from the Previous Semester
Week of Dance
Week of Dance
During the first week of December the Arts Council and the Robsham Theater Arts Center premiered a brand new event, the Week of Dance! This week-long celebration was created to showcase the spectacular dancing talent Boston College has to offer. With a movie night, photo exhibition, and dance workshops run by student groups, this event encouraged everyone to step outside of their comfort zone and dance. The week culminated with two nights of a showcase featuring some of the best student-run dance groups at BC.
