On May 20 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Global Giving will host Carmel’s Best Dance Crew in the Dale E. Graham Auditorium. Tickets will be on sale from May 16 to 20, and the cost is $5. According to the event’s chairman Megan Ting, the event will consist of six to eight crews performing, each crew with three to seven people. Each crew is compiling their own music mix, which will be three to six minutes long. The crews will then be judged based on their performance, though Ting said the method of judging is not yet decided.
“We’re either going to have three judges or we’re going to use popular vote,” she said. “We’re still trying to sort that part of it out, but we will soon.”
Ting said all students are encouraged to come.
“We’re trying to encourage everybody to come. They can bring their families or people from other schools, too,” she said. “Hopefully a lot of people will come out.”
According to Ting, all profits will go towards charities such as World Vision and earthquake relief organizations.
“World Vision does a lot of important things around the world. They help feed kids in Africa, and recently they helped a lot in Pakistan,” she said. “It’s a really important cause.”
Ting said members of the Comedy Sportz club will be hosting the event, and that they also may have The Council, a school band, perform.
This is the first time Global Giving will be supporting this event, and Ting said her goal is to have a good turnout, as well as make everything run smoothly.
“I’m really hoping a lot of people will decide to come out and dance,” she said. “It’s an important cause, and we really want to promote having fun and people’s passions about dancing.”
