Jefferson Poi Club puts on a virtual performance to “Miracle” by The Score. In the absence of their usual performances at iNite, the talent show, and J-Day, the Poi club has been editing together video performances. “Now that those events aren’t happening in their usual form, and since we can’t meet in-person at all, we’ve had to come up with alternative performance ideas. We’re making videos instead this year, where people learn choreography individually, submit a video, and we edit it together,” senior Katherine Phan said.
