Patriot Performances at the Cowan Center

With the new semester well under way, new faces everywhere, and new friends being made, there are new opportunities to find exciting things to go and do. One of the places that has captured my attention is the Cowan Center.

In high school, I was in drill team, and I felt my best when dancing and cheering at pep rallies and dancing on stage. There’s just something about the costumes and the chance to perform that just kick-starts my heart! I guess my personal style icon Marilyn Monroe said it best: “some girls are just born with glitter in their veins.”

The Cowan Center is by far one of my favorite places on campus. Lots of practice rooms, couches, pianos, nice places to study- I could go on all day. Not to mention there have been so many famous people inside of it. The world famous Blue Man Group came to Tyler recently. (You can see the vlog Emmy did about them, here) There’s just something about being around so much professional and student talent. It’s inspirational, I just know it!

They're Blue Dabba Dee Dabba Da!
 On September 23, Menopause the Musical is coming to the Cowan Center. It is being advertised as a comedic musical and my curiosity is getting the better of me. Musicals are my kryptonite and I have found myself dancing in quite a few. It is rather difficult to watch a musical while you are dancing in one, though. But the upside is you can always buy the DVD and other memorabilia!
For some reason, this reminds me of The Bachelor


One of my biggest dreams has been to be on stage as a dancer and I am fortunate to have been able to accomplish that. I think it sounds like a great opportunity to get some friends together and go see some amazing talent brought to our very own scenic Tyler, Texas!
