It’s no question that the Bryan/College Station area is home to thousands of creative and gifted individuals. If you’ve been looking for an event that will display some of the amazing talent at Texas A&M, look no further than the third annual Aggies Got Talent.
Sponsored by the Student Government Association, Aggies Got Talent is a performance dedicated to showcasing the visionary skills of current undergraduate students and organizations. Aggies Got Talent was created after a conversation between Student Body President Kyle Kelly and Gracie Wood, the SGA Development Commissioner. Their goal was to create an event that would attract a large student audience every year in order to raise money for SGA organizations. All proceeds from the event benefit the Student Government Association Endowment which helps organizations such as The Big Event and Traditions Council.
Featured acts include Dance Arts Society, a student run organization that allows members to choreograph dances, perform, and continue to express their passion for dancing. Dance Arts Society specializes in contemporary dance including tap, jazz, hip-hop, and ballet. They plan on performing a fun, sassy jazz routine for their performance this year.
Also performing a dance routine is Ahk Mastani, Texas A&M’s premiere Bollywood dance team that incorporates various global styles into their routines including all forms of Indian and fusion dance. They aim to spread diversity of Indian culture and culture awareness across campus.
In addition to dance, you will also be able to watch Freudian Slip, Texas A&M’s very own improvisational comedy group that has been delivering their unique sense of humor to the area for over 20 years. Other performers include Emily Orr, Courtney Kiolbassa, Madeline Kinnaird, Jordan Brownlow & Rebecca Lancaster, Cameron Stokes, Samantha Garcia, Nicholar Roberts, Keefer Patterson, Adrian Rangel, and more!
In addition to the show, a silent auction will be held an hour before the show begins where audience members can bid for items of their choosing.
Aggies Got Talent will be held February 11 in Rudder auditorium. The doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7 pm. Tickets can be bought in advance for $7 or at the door for $10.
