Hip Hop Dance At Ole Miss

April 28th, Beyond Movement, a new hip hop dance group marked their spot at Ole Miss. Beyond Movement was started by Jasmine Harris a senior at the University. Harris has tried to start a successful dance group for the 3 years she has attended Ole Miss. This is the first year that a group she started has a actually had show. April 28th Beyond Movement had their showcase to display the dances they worked so hard to perform. The group consist of 19 members, 14 girls and 5 boys.
The group’s main focus is hip hop, but they are thinking of expanding their style of dance. “We have the most dedicated group of dancers and students that we can’t help but to grow as a team, family, and individually” the head choreographer, Taylur Avery stated. The group members are truly dedicated. Beyond Movement practiced six times a week starting in January up until the showcase. Balancing a demanding practice schedule and school work was difficult for the members at times but they got it done.
The showcase was a great success. The show was located in the Luckyday Residential College’s commons. For their first show they had a huge audience of over 250 people. Beyond Movement performed four different routines with the theme of the show being America’s Best Dance Crew. Between each performance they had younger female dancers from a dance school in Oxford perform. “Hard work pays off and you can tell through the Beyond Movement showcase it was a great show”, an audience member, Jonathan Pender said. The show overall had great feedback.
