Name: David Bologna
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Year: Gallatin freshman
Dorm: Rubin residence hall
Act: Original tap dance

What is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration has always been old Hollywood movie-musicals. There’s something so fun, enjoyable and artistic about them that is so unique.

How long have you been performing, and what made you interested in performing in the first place?
I’ve been performing since I was seven. I started Irish dancing then got into musical theater. Then at 13 I started doing more tap and conventional dancing. It’s always been something that has intrigued me. It’s a rush that’s unlike anything else.

What made you decide to participate in the UVL Prelims?
Well, I attended the Rubin general assembly meetings, and they announced the event. It sounded like a great opportunity to perform, so I decided to try.

What was the first thing that went through your mind when you found out you were advancing to the finals at Skirball?
I was completely excited. It’s going to be so fun.

What would winning UVL mean to you?
Winning UVL would be amazing, but honestly the night is really more of a celebration of everyone who has made it! I can’t wait to see all the other acts and be a part of such a big event.
