The Filipino Student Association (FSA) at the University of Florida hosted its annual dance competition, Def Talent Jam! In its 24th year, the contest features FSAs from schools across Florida as far as Atlanta, Georgia, as well as showcase teams that are unaffiliated with a school.The competition develops not only creative talent and dedication, but professional skills such as coordinating and enforcing deadlines for the teams and seeking sponsorships from local businesses. Under the direction of Allison Malkiewicz and Clarissa Marie Zaide, the teams modeled their routines to pay tribute to some of Broadway's biggest hits such as Grease and West Side Story. For his first solo performance, Law Devera closed the show as the featured guest dancer, a member of the Kinjaz crew and Poreotics crew, which he competed with on Season 5 of America's Best Dance Crew.This year, due to increased support by the UF Student Government, the show was completely free drawing a record breaking audience of more than a thousand guests.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
