As one of several Black History Month events, UNI’s Black Student Union (BSU) hosted a “Step Up and Step Out” dance event in the Maucker Union Ballroom on Tuesday evening, Feb. 6.

Those in attendance learned choreography from the MOVEment, African dances from the African Union and moves from BSU Vice President NeiAira Burt. Attendees also learned the history behind African American dance and music, as well as the importance of being active and healthy within the black community.

BSU’s next event is the “Night at the Apollo Talent Show” on Friday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. in Lang Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
