Once again, UrbanKnowlogy 101 wrapped up the year with a strong performance at the annual GMU Fashion Show for HIV Awareness Week. This year, the theme was “Red Alert: Work the Runway” with more vendors and supporters than ever before, including Macy’s and Belle Mode Intimates. UK 101 had the honor of performing twice, opening for the night and again for part II of the show.
Watch below for both parts! Part I (0:14) shows off our sexy ladies and gentlemen while Part II (4:45) draws out a story through our dancing about the consequences of being unsafe.
We had some of the roughest practices that reminded me of when I first joined the team four years ago, but the late nights seemed to have bonded us even more as a team. Some unexpected events challenged our abilities to work together for the betterment of the show, and witnessing them taught me the importance of making difficult decisions on the spot while considering what is right for the majority. We were very lucky to pull through and show our final product – we couldn’t have done it without every single member of the team. Cheers to another great show and an even better year ahead!
