Many cultures have traditional music and dance forms that celebrate the preciousness of food and the harvest. The event began with all students doing a warm-up led by Stanton, where they learned a dance from Senegal. Then they were divided into two groups, with one group learning a traditional dance from Japan supported by a Taiko ensemble led by music department instructor, Mark Rooney; the other learned a dance from Ghana led by Dance Department Artist in Residence Iddi Saaka. Each group then performed for the other.
