Communication Students Collaborate with Local Nonprofit

The Lewis University Communication Club, which includes a collaboration between broadcasting and PR/advertising students is producing a new show called DanceOnTV.  Greg Long, founder of DanceOn Chicago will interview a variety of dancers, instructors and artists for the DanceOnTV series. DanceOn Chicago is dedicated to encouraging dancers and artists to follow their passion, despite adversity created by bullying and societal pressures. “I’m beyond thrilled about the chance to work with the Lewis University students and to see my vision of DanceOnTV come to life,” said Greg Long. Assistant professors of communication Jen Murdaugh and Tracy Hemmingway lead the students as co-chairs. John Kilpatrick, associate professor of communications and director of TV operations, oversees the technical and post-production aspects of the productions. Over the course of the semester, the students will produce several interviews. Students are also working on developing PR material and creating a social media buzz about DanceOnTV and the collaboration. The first interview was filmed on Sunday and featured Ebrin Stanley who played the lead dual roles of James Madison and Hercules Mulligan of “Hamilton the Musical” in Chicago. This episode was posted March 1. One of the students also conducted a spontaneous follow-up interview with Mulligan on WLRA following the TV production. “It was an amazing opportunity.
