Curry’s Spring Weekend wasn’t the same this year without the annual GrooveBoston dance party. The event, scheduled for April 20, was cancelled due to the investigation following the Boston Marathon bombings.

According to the college’s Student Activities office, GrooveBoston will return to campus in the fall for a make-up performance. Until then, hear from Bobby Dutton, director of GrooveBoston, about the art and craft involved in throwing a party to remember.
