Jorgensen Events Feed Upcoming Jorgensen Events Feed. en-us 60 Andrea Gibson /events/view.php?id=401

Variety / Lecture

Andrea Gibson is not gentle with her truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led her to the forefront of the spoken word movement. The first winner of the Women’s World Poetry Slam, Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality. Her work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV and in 2010 was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature.  Now, on her fifth full-length album FLOWER BOY and her second book THE MADNESS VASE, Gibson’s poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart’s most compassionate room.


This event is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and the general public. No tickets required.

UConn Tap Team /events/view.php?id=399

Dance / Tap Dance

The UConn Tap Team is a club sport organization, comprised of tap dancers who wish to expand upon our talents and learn new methods, steps, and more from each other. Through tap, we strive to create connections with others, both those who tap, as well as those who do not. We participate in community services events, fundraisers, and perform locally on campus, as well as compete regionally in dance competitions.

Each spring, the Tap Team puts on our Annual Showcase which is a compilation of our dances that we have been working on throughout the year. These consist of not only tap routines created by our team choreographers, but also other small groups choreographed by members of the team, varying in dance styles. In addition to our dances, we invite other groups around campus to perform as well. In the past we've had A Completely Different Note, RubyFruit, UConn Dance Company, and many others as well.
