From late nights in parking lots to even later nights in an apartment accommodating all 34 of us on a Saturday night, this is ACA Hip Hop. You’re not just looking at dancers; you’re looking at UCLA engineers, biochemists, and polisci, english, and math majors. You’re looking at sorority and fraternity pledges, musicians, and future doctors. You’re looking at my family.
This year we’ve definitely had our ups and downs. We’ve had midterms and finals that we need to pass. We’ve had injuries. We’ve had people come and go. We’ve had hours and hours.. and hours on end practicing until we were almost all dead, but we’re all still here. Because a family sticks together through the good times and the bad. We work hard, we play hard, and we dance.. hard.
Here at UCLA, I wouldn’t say we’re the best team and I wouldn’t say we’re the worst; we’re the underdogs most of the time, and it kills me, it really does. Our coords deserve better recognition, and our team simply deserves the best. This year, we’re more focused than ever, and we have the drive to fight for what we deserve.
As a wise alumni once said,
Be humble and STAY HUNGRY.
ACA Hip Hop, it’s our time to shine.
Shellooooo, it’s the turtle year! Slow and steady wins the r..ACA. [I’m pretty sure that sounds much more motivating when it’s said aloud]
And our team looks good, oh we look so good.
