May 1 will mark the first annual Year End Bash.

Sponsored by Black Student Alliance and Weekend Stuff, the dance is being held at Jack’s place from 8:30 p.m. until midnight.

“I want this to be a running event,” James McKinney, multicultural center intern, said. “I wanted something to commemorate the year.”

McKinney stressed the importance of the whole university being represented at the dance.

“In the future I would like the event to celebrate every event, athlete, researcher in the university,” McKinney said.

Expect a very casual atmosphere.

“The dance will be loosey-goosey with a very open atmosphere,” McKinney said.

Along with Boss Regis doing the DJing, performers Aisha and Tina will share a song, a live band The Jammerz will perform and a hip-hop step team will perform.

The step team features six to eight members and was formed by football players who took an interest in stepping after the Step Show earlier this year, McKinney said.

McKinney said he wants students to just let the performances happen, with no specific time slotted for any event.

In the future he would also like to see more students get involved in future dances.

If anyone is interested in performing at this year’s dance, contact the Multicultural Center in the basement of The Union or James McKinney at [email protected].

“This is just a way to release all the stress and then go study,” McKinney said.
