Hundreds of people from around the Pittsburgh area came out in droves to support, “Bring It To The Burgh” a majorette dance competition live event that took place at The Obama Academy March 5.
However, the event did not go as planned. Hundreds were unable to get inside of the event due to lack of seating. Tickets were unfortunately over sold, leading to the event being over capacity. Family members and friends were turned away, not able to be a part of the show or support the cause or their loved ones.
Christopher Robinson, an event participant, said, “I made it my business to be here at this event today, because I personally know the owner of the Dancing Dolls, because we both are alumni of Jackson State University. I came out to represent and show love, and it’s sad that I couldn’t get inside. But it’s even more disheartening to see so many Black people come out to support our own for the event to turn out like this. I also was sure to purchase my ticket in advance, and was still unable to get in.”
