Dancing in Honor of Black History Month

International Society’s Culture Shock is a multi-cultural dance group that has been representing University of the Sciences at several major events throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. On February 27, in honor of Black History Month, they were invited to perform at the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology Harrison Auditorium for its 27th Annual Celebration of African Cultures.

The group serves to promote cultural diversity and acceptance of underrepresented cultures through dance from all parts of the world. Last Fall Culture Shock was given the opportunity to share their many talents with audiences at the Community College of Philadelphia's "World Cultures Day" and at the University of Pennsylvania's Annual International Students and Scholars Welcome Reception, where students from local colleges and even international delegates came together to enjoy various activities and food displays from different cultures. In addition, Culture Shock represented the University at the HIAS Refugee Thanksgiving Dinner by performing and also volunteering to serve refugees a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
