Given that it's Ivies Weekend, it seems unlikely that anyone would want to go sit still in a dark room for an hour. With Harpswell, Pinestock, and the concert on the Quad, it's easy to understand why. However, we can think of at least one reason: It's called "Openings," and it's the spring dance concert going on Friday and Saturday.

Due to the many distractions that are occurring this weekend, we feel that "Openings" needs our support. Featuring performers from this semester's three dance classes, the hour-long show is the culmination of three months of hard work.

For anyone who hasn't been to a Bowdoin dance show before, we highly recommend it. The pieces are always clever and original, showing a good mix of different styles and speeds. You don't need trained eyes or ears to be able to appreciate the grace and precision of bodies in motion.

So for one hour this weekend, put down your PBR, turn off the music, fill up your Nalgene (with water for a change), and go relax and recuperate at the dance show. It will be worth it.
