Raw Footage” coming to ENMU
ENMU is set to host “Raw Footage,” a step-dance performance by the group Molodi, at 8:30 p.m. April 22 in the Campus Union Building Ballroom.
Kate Carr, instructor of voice, describes stepping as “an African-American art form that incorporates body percussion, spoken word and, in Molodi’s case, they’ve tweaked stepping to fit in with the many other talents each performer brings to the stage.
The performance is free and open to the public.
Information: Kate Carr at 562-4032.
