Dyverzion, one of Georgia Southern University’s biggest dance teams, will host their biggest show of the year, “Lit Since ‘96,” this Friday.

The show will be April 7 at 7 p.m. in the Williams Center. Tickets will be on sale for $5 in the Russell Union. They will be $7 at the door on the day of the event.

“We want to show you what we work so hard for, what we work so hard on, and why we are so hard on ourselves,” Porscha Jefferson, senior choreographer, said.

Dyverzion was started in 1996 by three GS students. The team is co-ed and welcomes different styles of dancing and levels of experience.

“We are a hardworking team. We take this very seriously. If you join Dyverzion, it is because it is something that is a passion for you,” Jefferson said.

The team has performed at events around campus such as Stomp Fest, Gorilla Thriller, Doo-Dah and even the Migos performance in 2015. They also have flash mobs around campus throughout the semester and travel outside of Statesboro for some performances.

“The main thing is to showcase everybody’s strong points. This [year’s Lit Since ’96 show] is really based off emotions,” Jessie Martin, senior choreographer, said.

The team functions as a family and welcomes new members early fall semester. To keep up with the team and its performance, you can follow @dyverziondanceteam on Twitter.
