TRU Sweater Dance—A virtual dance party to support climate change – TRU Newsroom
The TRU Sustainability Office wants you to dance… for a good cause!
Join us at the virtual TRU Sweater Dance and help raise awareness and take action on climate change while having fun. Invite your COVID-bubble friends and dance the night away on Friday, Feb. 5 from 9 to 10:30 p.m.
You can dance if you want to or just watch your friends have fun. You can even ignore the screen completely if you’re tired of computers. Just com, enjoy the music and take action on climate change. We have yet to determine who will DJ the event so prepare to be surprised!
What is it?
It’s a COVID-friendly virtual dance party in support of climate change action and awareness. The event is intended for everyone at TRU and it’s free!
Why is it happening?
The TRU Sustainability Office wants you to have fun, dance and raise awareness on climate change. During the dance, please turn down the heat by 0.5 to 2 degrees and put on a sweater to stay warm. We are excited to see your sweater, so don’t forget to wear one.
When is it?
Friday, Feb. 5 2021, 9-10:30 p.m.
Where is it?
The Sweater Dance is being hosted virtually on Microsoft Teams so you can join in your living room or any COVID-safe space. If you don’t already have the Microsoft Teams video conferencing application (MS Teams), you will need to download it before the event starts. Make sure your camera works and set up your audio so you get the best sound for your dance party space!
Who can join?
Current TRU students, staff or faculty members who have a TRU email and love to dance! But space is limited so register early.
How do I register?
The registration deadline is January 31. You will need a TRU email to join. Register by emailing email@example.com and write‘Sweater Dance’ in the subject line. We will email you a response with a link to the TRU Sweater Dance closer to February 5.
- What’s Your Favourite Dance Song? We want to know what your favourite dance songs are so we can play them at the dance, so we’re having a contest! To enter, either email your song choices to firstname.lastname@example.org (write ‘Dance Songs’ in the subject line) or follow the contest on our social media channels—Facebook, Twitter or Instagram—and comment on the contest posts with your favourite dance songs. If you send us even one song, your name will go into the contest draw for a chance at winning one of three $50 gift certificates to the TRU Bookstore. The contest closes January 31 and winners will be announced during the dance. Send lots of songs!
- The Sweaties—The sweater contest. The Sweaties contest has started and will last until the Sweater Dance event ends. There are three categories—ugliest sweater, funkiest sweater and coziest sweater. The winner of each category will win a $50 Gift Certificate to the TRU Bookstore. Enter by either emailing a selfie of you in your sweater to email@example.com (write ‘Sweaties’ in the subject line) or follow the contest on our social media channels—Facebook, Twitter or Instagram—and post a selfie of you wearing your favourite sweater on the contest posts. Winners will be announced after the event.
