In the summary of their dance “123 Each Day,” J. Chow ’23, E. Dunne ’23, J. Li ’23, and J. Mulvey ’23, noted “Our dance portrays the serious consequences of cyberbullying through abstract movements and serious emotions. Through our dramatic movements, we show how the effects of cyberbullying can go unnoticed by everyone around the victim.”
