Many of the WACSmash dances focus on audience engagement through off-stage dancing, sensory experiences and ground-level stages.

"Mad Haus" by Raphael Smith, fourth-year dance student. Smith's dance features hip-hop dancing with Vogue Femme fundamentals to portray rebellion against the strict masculine standards and stereotypes he grew up with.

"Ego on a Ledge" by Matthew Rogers, fourth-year world arts and cultures student. Rogers' original choreographed piece stems from thoughts of depression and anxiety, which he experienced over the past several years.
