Elite Magnificence brings majorette-style dances to Japanese – The Every day Japanese Information

If you search for “Majorette Dancing” online, you will find mentions of baton rolling, dancing, and even knife juggling. However, this does not apply to Eastern’s new majorette dance club.

Iyanna Stanton, a sophomore journalism major and former club president, said the majorette dance troupe that their troupe calls “Elite Elegance” is more dance than death-defying juggling.

Stanton would describe her dances as “majorette style” or “southern style”.

“If you’ve ever heard of the ‘Bring It’ show, it’s like that kind of dancing, so we don’t use batons, it’s like jerks and routines and stuff,” Stanton said.

According to Asianna Martin, a junior public relations major who is the DJ and treasurer of Elite Elegance, the dance club has up to 18 members, but they are not an officially registered student organization.

The club’s dream is to get RSO status, which could be approved during the student government meeting on Wednesday, and doesn’t stop there.

“The current goal is to become an RSO,” said Martin. “But the main goal is to become part of athletics.”

Although there may be competitions for the Elite Elegance Southern dance style, Martin told me that for the group it is all about having fun.

Elite Elegance attended Eastern’s homecoming parade and they hope to become the first majorette dance club on campus.

So why did the group feel that Eastern needed this type of dance group?

“We feel like bringing the EIU to the table would be different just because, like I said, it’s a different style of dance and not a lot of people know about it,” said Stanton.

The club is only a few months old but they got together in the name of dancing. Both Stanton and Martin agree that for them it’s all about fellowship and camaraderie.

Martin’s favorite part is not only Eastern’s first majorette dance club founded by blacks, but “seeing people come together and just dance.”

Martin said she likes to dance, but there’s a reason she’s the group’s DJ: she doesn’t dance.

Once the group is officially designated “RSO,” they plan to perform on campus, but as yet cannot dance for an audience on campus, Martin said.

Stanton found majorette dancing in high school after looking for a group that had something consistent with their penchant for rhythmic movements.

According to Martin, Kylira Beary, a junior marketing major and the group’s president, went to high school with Martin and also found Majorette dancing in high school.

There is a lot of preparation going on behind the scenes during majorette dancing before the group can go out and show off their stuff.

“The vice president, secretary, and president are taking the steps from scratch,” said Martin.

You could start creating a dance to the music, or, the founder said, sometimes they just use an 8-count or 16-count to sync the Elite Elegance dance to a rhythm.

Stanton said that some dances take a few hours while others take longer. As for teaching the dances to other members of the group, Stanton said it can sometimes take up to a week, but it all depends.

Although Martin and Stanton told me everyone is welcome, you may need to improve your dance game if you plan to perform with the group, as Stanton said there will be trial training to ensure that only the very best represent Elite Elegance on stage.

This week Elite Elegance will find out where their RSO status is.

“When you dance you have to have an attitude,” said Stanton. “Like the dance moves, everything has to be cheeky and classy.”

Jap Iowa Honor Float raises cash for veterans to affix Honor Flight

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) – Hundreds of people took part in kayaking on the Wapsipinicon River in Central City for the third Honor Float Saturday.

The three and a half hour drive raised money for the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight so veterans could take a trip to Washington DC to visit memorials. Organizers said the pandemic made it difficult to raise money. Last year they raised only $ 1000, with the Honor Flight seat costing $ 500 for each person.

Organizers said it was heartwarming to hear the stories of the veterans who attended the experience.

“My neighbor, who has since passed away, had to take the honor flight and couldn’t get to the house fast enough to tell us about it,” said Deborah Holton, the event organizer. “There were so many special things they did for veterans; They rolled out the red carpet for her. I tried that with the swimmer. “
