Div Dance is an Antioch College tradition, a campus-wide gathering before students leave for 3-6 months to go on co-op. This time around, Div Dance will feature live performances from Yellow Springs and Antioch College artists and is open to the community. Several of those artists visited the WYSO studios to perform live including Antioch College students Della Jerkan and Zachary Sullivan.
Yellow Springs' Speaking Suns are among the community artists that will perform at Div Dance. The band made a return visit to Excursions to share some new material.
Local musician Trey Stone and Black Box Theater owner Justin Howard make a return visit to the WYSO studios to talk about a new collaboration.

Stone performs live on Kaleidoscope as he and Howard talk to host Juliet Fromholt about how this collaboration came about, their mutual background in improv and what the preparations for Friday's show have been like.
