BU on Tap hosted its 10th annual Mass Rhythms Spring Show this weekend, and members of the group dedicated the performance to Victoria “Tori” Rubino (COM’09), a friend and fellow BU on Tap member. Rubino, who had previously been the group’s vice president, passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago.

BU on Tap’s eight members were joined for the show by the BU dancing groups Vibes, Edge, Step About Boston, and Future Phunk.

Rubino loved hip-hop dancing, her friends say, and to honor her, BU on Tap performed a dance Rubino choreographed to the song “I Wish,” by Stevie Wonder. The show also featured a slide show in memory of Rubino.

“Every moment with Tori was amazing,” says Jaimee DiMarco (CAS’10, SED’10), a friend and fellow dancer. “She was proud to be a member of BU on Tap and rocked every performance. She loved tap dancing, and it was great to watch her.”
