DanceWorks paid homage to the '80s during "We Got the Beat," their 29th annual performance.

The entrance of Goldstein Auditorium was decorated with balloons in the shape of boom boxes in preparation for the '80s themed DanceWorks performance "We Got the Beat." As audience members took their seats, the buzz inside the auditorium calmed down as everyone waited for the show to start.

Lights embraced the stage, music started to play and with each dancer’s movement the smell of their hairspray filled the auditorium.

This year’s DanceWorks performance was met with thunderous applause and cheers between each dance and once again at curtain call.

Review: With a Samoan dance style, Black Grace brought talent and tradition to Goldstein Auditorium for a night filled with cultural.

It may have been a snowy Monday night in Syracuse, but that didn’t stop people in the community from coming out to see New Zealand’s leading contemporary dance group, Black Grace, perform their athletic and traditional repertory.  

“We love seeing live dance and there’s not many opportunities in Syracuse to see it. So, whenever we have an opportunity, we try to see it,” Sarah Saulson of Syracuse, who attended the event with her husband Peter, expained.
