Aptos, CA— After sold out performances of last winter’s dance concert, the Cabrillo College Dance Department is proud to present twenty of Cabrillo’s student choreographers, and more than one hundred dancers, who will perform the last Spring Dance Concert in Cabrillo College’s original theater.
Come celebrate over thirty years of dance at Cabrillo and witness the talent and energy that will bring the dance department forward into Cabrillo College’s 50th anniversary celebrations and next year’s performances in the brand new Richard and Theresa Crocker Theater.
Dance forms range from hip hop to salsa, contemporary dance to swing. Cabrillo’s dance students demonstrate how much fun you can have in five minutes or less—the maximum length that artistic directors David King and Cid Pearlman have set for each dance piece. King and Pearlman will also premiere new works on the program, along with faculty member Amy Farhood-Sterling, who directs the Salsa Repertory Class on Cabrillo’s Watsonville campus.
The Robert Bristol Award and the Tandy Beal Scholarship will be presented at Saturday evening’s performance. The Roberta Bristol Award, named after the founding faculty member of the department, goes to a student who has shown dedicated service and contribution to the dance department as well as immense talent in the field of dance. The Tandy Beal Scholarship is given to encourage a first-year dance student to complete their studies.
