New organization gives students the chance to dance

UMHB has a number of student organizations on campus.
There is at least one organization that everyone can get involved in.
Impact Dance is one of the newer organizations on campus.
The organization was chartered in fall of 2016 and began meeting during the spring of 2017.
Shelby Rogers, a junior phycology major, who has been dancing for 17 years is a part of the new organization.
“Impact Dance is for students who like to dance or would like to learn how to dance.”
No matter your skill level, Impact Dance is a place where you can come to have fun and dance all your problems away.
Rogers is also the organization’s chaplain.
At each meeting, she leads a devotional and prayer time for all who come.
The fact that this organization is also faith-centered is something special that UMHB is able to offer.
Each week the group averages 10-15 people and focuses on a different types of dance, such as cha cha.
“My favorite thing about Impact is the fun we have,” Rogers said.
“Our meetings are full of laughter and I always leave in a better mood then when I first came in. I also just love to dance.”
The group also tries to make an “impact” on the commmunity.
Impact Dance dedicates time to help others.
Last year, Impact Dance had a fundraiser, “Candy for a Cure” to raise money for McLane Children’s Hospital.
In addition to the hospital, the organization has also raised money for the Methodist church near campus.
If you are interested in dancing and want to help the community, Rogers suggests checking out Impact Dance.
You can follow their Instagram @umhb_impactdance or stop by one of their meetings on Monday nights at 6 p.m. in McLane Great Hall.
