Columbia Confessions has only been around for a little while, but it’s already generated some weird posts—including one in which a stoner-turned-anti-marijuana-crusader exposes us as alleges us to be a propaganda network.
Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.

On Saturday night, Columbia Ballet Collaborative held their fall performance at the Ailey Citigroup Theater in west midtown. Internal Editor Sarah Kinney and staff writer Elle Ferguson (both of whom are ballet-ers themselves) attended the performance to see what they had in store. What they found was an enticing and experimental showcase of ballet in all its forms. […]
There are so many performances on campus in the lead-up to finals that it can be hard to keep track of them all. Bwog is here to give you hand; we sent Bwogger Aliya Schneider to photograph (and eventually review) Orchesis’ semesterly show, because chances are you have at least one friend in it who […]
Last night, Staff Writer Becky Novik attended Onyx‘s spring showcase, and was blown away by the talent and energy of the performers.

This is how we ended up spending our Thursday night at the Columbia University Ballet Ensemble’s rendition of Cinderella, running for one night only in the Roone Alredge Auditorium. I’m notorious for […]
French fanatic and fastidious Bwogger Rachel Deal brings coverage of French hip hop, with an emphasis on both hips and hopping. Last Thursday evening, The Maison Française hosted a talk about French Moves, a book by Felicia McCarren on urban dance practices of minorities in France. The speakers were McCarren herself, who is a French professor at […]
Two Barnard seniors, Julia Discenza and Marjie Shrimpton (BC ’14) have taken on the challenge of creating, directing, and producing a collaborative piece of evening-length dance.

While you may recognize her name from the captions of innumerable Bwog illustrations, Louise McCune expresses her artistic appreciation of a more sensual form in her review of Orchesis’ new show.

Guys, you’ll never believe this: Mark Hay was there! Just past the doors of Roone Arledge Auditorium last night, a chubby and balding older man spasmodically twirled about to the sharp rap of a dhol over a loud speaker. As he twisted about in what could have been a reenactment of Monty Python’s Ministry of […]
