We Are…The Dancers (The Final Hours)

THON's 46 hours are coming to a close, and surprisingly the dance floor is still packed with dancers and the Bryce Jordan Center has officially closed its doors and a line has formed outside.

The situation behind the scenes, however, isn't as pretty and colorful as it is out on the floor. Dancers have been forced to quit due to exhaustion. Many are holding each other, crying on one another's shoulders for support as they battle the physical and mental toll that staying awake and on one's feet for 46 hours can have.

Breakdancing at THON

What feels like forever ago, we blogged about a breakdance circle that came together on the floor towards the back of the BJC.

Cumberland Valley THON was lucky enough to get a video of the dancers as they were getting down.


Indie Spotlight: Pillar

I was intrigued by the signs from across the BJC that spelled out 'PILLAR,' so I decided to go talk with Executive Chair Christie Damato to see what Pillar was all about.
