Bodyhype has been my family on campus since day one. I knew as soon as I set foot in auditions that BH would be a company that challenged me artistically and technically, but what I didn’t realize then was just how much this crazy red family would shape my Princeton experience. Not only am I a better dancer and artist, but I am an undoubtedly a better (and a little more fun) person because of this dance family.
BodyHype has been the most significant part of my Princeton experience. I never danced before college, but I met some friendly BodyHypers during my Preview weekend who convinced me to audition once I got to Princeton. Since then, my life has never been the same. Dance is now one of my passions in life. I’ve choreographed a piece every semester since I’ve been in BodyHype and I’ve competed in the World of Dance competition my freshman year. I’ve grown so much in a field that I am passionate about, I’ve met some of my best friends, and I’ve made unforgettable memories, all because of BodyHype.
I came to love BodyHype when I was encouraged as a freshman to choreograph during my fall semester. There was not only acceptance but also genuine excitement about my artistic choices, even though I was still figuring out the direction of the piece. In addition to the freedom of choreography, I love BodyHype for the moment during our shows when we are all waiting for the curtain to open, holding our breath in the darkness, anticipating the music so we can shout our BodyHype cheer. Because in that moment, all anxiety disappears, and instead we feel pure exhilaration, pure hype.
Come watch us dance
