A night that was originally organized to raise awareness and support for the UNL dance program turned into a celebration of its salvation. In early November, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln proposed a new budget that cut several programs including the dance program. The program received enough support from donations to prevent the closure of the program. During the night of #SaveUNLDance, UNL dance students performed various routines in front of the capitol, including interpretive dance and freestyle, while also sharing the importance of the UNL dance program and the impacts it has created in their lives.
