Mobtowners,

Because a large number of people signed up for the last class session with a mask requirement in place, we felt it would be inappropriate to take the masks off until the session was over. It ended this week, and we are happy to say that the Ballroom will be going mask-optional (which, we suppose, was always the case) starting tomorrow night. A handful of things:
1) Proof of vaccination is still required and will remain required for the foreseeable future.
2) If the situation changes, our response will change. Masks may come back. That's life.
3) We'll be carrying a mask in our pockets, and will be absolutely willing to put them on to dance with people who would prefer it that way. You should, too! Hooray!
4) Don't harass people about it. Don't harass the staff about it. If you have to share your feelings on the subject, share them with Michael and Sarah. But probably don't do that either. Treat everyone with respect and dignity.

What can you do with a humanities degree? We've asked graduates from across the Humanities Division to write about what their current jobs are like, and how their educations helped prepare them for the challenges and responsibilities of their current work. Right now, we're spotlighting Michael Seguin, who was recently a panelist on our Alumnx Career Panel! Here, he discusses how his humanities education prepared him to own his own business, the Mobtown Ballroom! Michael majored in Classics and Latin (University of Washington Classics Department), and writes, “My humanities education at the UW kept me tethered to the arts in some fashion throughout my adult life. After spending so much time tangling with the classics, I knew on a deep level that a job that wasn't connected to art and creativity would be unsuitable for me. That's a scary thing to realize, but it was also liberating, and my background really did inspire me to think in different ways and to work my way around a lot of roadblocks... I discovered that professional contacts, far from scorning my degree, found it refreshing to work with someone with a broad view and zeal for all kinds of knowledge. Beyond that, I think the humanities keep you alive, keep you nimble, and keep you sane. All of that matters in your career… Professionally speaking--and I say this as someone well outside of academia or education--the humanities have given me everything.” To read more about how Michael’s humanities background has helped him in his career, visit the link in our bio! #humfirstawesomealumnx

Happy first week of classes! We're excited to see what the spring semester brings and to hear what everyone was up to over winter break. For those who spent Intersession in Baltimore, there was no shortage of things to do! In addition to taking classes and continuing research, many students discovered new passions by checking out some of our hometown's local businesses. Looking for a way to get your creative juices flowing in Baltimore? Try your hand at the pottery wheel at ANG Pottery in Fells Point (pictured here), prepare traditional Greek meze plates at Schola in Mount Vernon, or learn to lindy hop at Mobtown Ballroom in Pigtown! What's your favorite creative activity? #JohnsHopkins #JHU #Hopkins #Baltimore #StudentLife #StudentExperience #TheBmoreCreatives #GoHop
They say that the number 1 New Year’s resolution was to dance. Here is your chance Mobtown Ballroom has it going on.
Anyone willing to buy my ticket???
