Last night was ariels night at the UMD Swing Dancing Club! I am thrilled that UMD continues to collaborate with St. Scholastica for awesome activities like this. In swing dancing, ariels are stunts and lifts. They are a really fun way to add some flare and personality to your dancing. We still had a regular lesson to practice some dips and turns as well but it was exciting to see everyone getting out of their comfort zone with lifts. There are quite a few Swing events coming up as well so there will plenty of opportunities to show off the new moves I learned.

Love is in the air

Love is in the air at CSS! With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, the student union is decked out in pinks and reds. Several campus and student groups are making sure college students have access to some classic Valentines gifts such as roses, cookies, cupcakes, and glassware. While I don’t plan on getting my Valentine any roses this year, we will be participating in Duluth/Superior festivities. Tonight is the University of Minnesota Duluth Swing Dance and tomorrow my sweetheart and I will be spending the holiday dancing the night away at the University of Wisconsin Superior Valentine’s Day Swing Dance. If that wasn’t enough, we also attended the Underground theaters production of American Idiot and will probably find some time to cook dinner together.
