Tap dancing and soul food will come together on Feb. 23, as the Student Life office and the Health and Wellness Department join forces to bring Food for the Soul to the Dunwoody Campus.
Dining in the Spirit catering company will provide menu items such as fried and baked chicken, macaroni and cheese, corn bread, sweet tea and other traditional soul food items. Tre McClendon of the McClendon School of Dance will give an oral history about the evolution of tap dancing in the black community.
Students and faculty are encouraged to take part in this year’s celebration by stopping by the Student Life Center between noon and 2 p.m. to hear about the rich history of tap and see a terrific dancer demonstrate his craft.
If your appetite drives you, stop by B2100 at Dunwoody campus and get a nose full of the mouthwatering aromas, bite down on a piece of traditional southern soul food and let the taste of southern history tap dance all over your taste buds.
This event is free to students.
