Boston is an exciting place to be during hockey finals - especially when the Bruins have a chance to win the Stanley Cup! My friends and I have been getting together to watch all of the games. I’m hoping I get to see another championship before I graduate …
This past week was gorgeous weather and I decided to spend my Sunday afternoon on Centennial Quad soaking up the sun with some friends. I also tried the slackline for the first time. It is definitely much more difficult than it looks, but at least I can check that off my senior bucket list!
Great question! Yes, ever since Irish step started about two years ago in NUDANCO, there has been at least one piece each semeseter. This past spring semester, there were two Irish step pieces for the first time (one soft shoe and one hard shoe).
Whether or not there is a piece does depend upon whether an Irish step dancer auditions to choreograph each semester, so although not guaranteed every semester, there has not been a semester without an Irish step piece since it began!
For more general information about NUDANCO, our website is www.nudanco.com.
We also have a YouTube channel where you can watch previous pieces (including the Irish step ones) at http://www.youtube.com/user/NUDANCO.

This weekend I went to visit the Boston Marathon bombings Memorial on Boylston Street. It is so great to walk down Boylston and see the hustle and bustle restored. Boston Strong!
Last night I joined my friend Meryl at The Dance Complex in Cambridge for two tap classes, one technique class and one repertory class. It felt so great to tap again! I’m glad I found somewhere I can go during the summer months, so that I do not have to wait until NUDANCO starts up again in the fall to to keep on tapping.
If you’re interested in dancing at NU, please feel free to reach out to me! There are a variety of options for all levels and dance styles, so that everyone can get involved! There are also other studios in Boston that hold adult dance classes on a weekly basis if that’s something that interests you.
This past week, I went to visit the memorial honoring all those who lost their lives or were injured in the Marathon bombings. It was set up on Boylston Street and was inspiring. There were so many gifts, flowers, sneakers, and signs left for all those affected by the bombings. I was in awe walking down Newbury Street, as well as reading the chalk that lined the streets outside of the Nike store. Even though two people committed such a terrible act, thousands came together to show their love and support for Boston. Boston, you’re my home!
Tomorrow officially marks the end of another semester and a week away from graduation. Although I’m on co-op, these past four months have flown by. The past few weeks have been filled with end of the year potlucks and awards ceremonies to recognize our seniors and wish them luck as they move on to the next phase of their lives. With seniors leaving campus in a week, the reality that I only have one year left is finally sinking in. I’m not so sure I’m ready to be called a senior yet ..
