Population Pierce: Matthew Salinas

“The place we have right here, we call it like ‘the hut.’ It’s not an official club but dancers just know that we’re there. So dancers come. We kinda act like a club, but it’s not official. [The Hut] was there before I came here. I think like four years ago it might have started. [Dancers] were already there. People would bring speakers. And they’d bring like a floor too. But those people left who brought the floor, so no one brings the floor anymore. But we still bring speakers, that’s mainly how it started. It was just a group of dancers and they just brought a speaker, because we have nothing to do in between classes sometimes, and dancers just come and go.”
