– Mia Hamm
On that warm, spring Wednesday, after months and months of preparation, it was time for our group of 16 dancers to dance our hearts out and represent Phi Beta Chi in front of the Panhellenic and UNC-CH community in a quite unique way.
All 130 of our biggest fans and closest friends sat in the front row of the right section. They were so loud I thought I would miss the first snap of “BO$$ “by Fifth Harmony. I was so excited and determined for the dance and my dancers. But mostly, as I already said, I was just so proud.
You know the moves; you’ve practiced them every Sunday since October and gone to office hours to perfect them. You know the songs; you may struggle to sing them but the beats and lyrics tell your body what to do. You know the dancers; your sisters on that stage with you are going to bring their all so you better match their level with your own sass and poise.
Knowing that, all that is required is that you perform, and I’ll be the first to tell you performing is the most exhilarating experience you’ll ever get to be a part of. I’ll also be the first to tell you that WE PERFORMED!
