KAOS to host spring showcase

Thanks to the 14 talented members of KAOS, students can celebrate the end of the year with music, hip-hop and dancing before entering the silence of Club Richter. On Tuesday at 9 p.m. KAOS hosts their annual spring showcase- an event that has been around since the founding of the club in the mid-’90s.

Finishing up her second semester as a KAOS member, freshman Julianne Byun can’t wait to relieve herself from the stress of finals and liven up campus.

“The spring showcase is really just to bring UM some amazing entertainment at the end of the semester,” Byun said, “It’s a night full of dancing, and people who are passionate about sharing their love for performing.”

KAOS dedicates at least two nights a week to practice during the semester. As the spring showcase nears, their practices last longer and take place more frequently.

President and fourth year member of KAOS, senior Rickey Pierre II, anticipates sharing the club’s originality and hard work with his fellow classmates.

“We do all of our own choreography. Everything you see on that stage is a product of our own creativity,” Pierre said. “I’ve loved every single second of it.”

After receiving feedback from the audience from the fall showcase, Pierre ensures students that they put all of their effort into making the spring showcase even better.

“We try to bring something new to each showcase so the experience is never the same,” Pierre said. “There’s also a segment that involves the KAOS guys and chairs that the ladies tend to enjoy.”

As entertaining as the showcase is for the audience members, Pierre encourages all students to audition next fall.

“We can’t count how many times we’ve heard ‘I wanted to try-out but I didn’t think I was good enough’”, Pierre said. “Whether you’ve been dancing your whole life or you’ve never danced before, it doesn’t hurt to try.”

Junior Eric Rivera has become an avid KAOS fan and looks forward to the showcase after watching them in action in the past.

“There’s no better way to end the year than seeing some phenomenal dancing,” Rivera said. “People would be crazy to miss out on it.”
