Her Campus Emory (HCE): What is AHANA?

Our shows are held at the end of each semester featuring student choreographed pieces as well as performances by some of Emory's best dance groups.

SS: I auditioned to dance in AHANA in the fall of my freshman year and have been a part of it every semester since! I have been a member of AHANA as a dancer, a choreographer, and an Executive Board member, and I love that AHANA provides so many different opportunities for students to get involved.

 

HCE: What’s your favorite part about AHANA?

SS: My favorite part of AHANA is that it incorporates so many different styles of dance. We've had everything from hip hop to salsa to bhangra, and it has been so fun getting to experiences new genres.

 

HCE: When did you start dancing?
