From ballet to world fusion, dance students will be performing at the spring dance concert on March 22 to March 24 at the Burnight Center Theatre.

General admission tickets are being sold for $15 and $12 for students, children and senior citizens.

Dance Choreography major Robert Felix said this semester’s performers show a “really good, energetic, positive attitude.”

He also mentioned that they show dedication during rehearsals.

The dance concerts are known to sell out quickly, due to being many of the participants’ first time in a dance performance with their family members come to watch and support, according to Felix.

There will be around 15 dance pieces featured in this semester’s concert, and none will be student choreography as opposed to previous semesters.

Guest performers will include the Ken Dance Company, the CSULB Salsa Dance Team and CC Repertory Dance Ensemble.

Felix says loss of family will be the theme of one of the dance pieces.

Business major Victoria Jacobson explained her favorite part of being in the concert,“I just like performing and being with everyone,” she said.

The concert will start at 8 p.m. March 22 and 23. There will be two shows on March 24, one at 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
