“I wasn’t nervous, the more you perform the less nervous you get,” stated Psychology and Journalism major Andrea Mora who was a part of the Spring Dance Concert at Cerritos College.

The Dancers performed March 21, 22, and 23. The dances were separated by two acts with a 15 minute intermission so that the dancers could rest and the audience could grab a bite to eat or use the restroom.

There was a total of 15 pieces each with its own style of music and different environment due to the performers choreography.

” I’m tired, but it came out better than I thought it would,” said Music major Edna Garcia who performed a ballet piece.

“It went well, and it was hot inside and outside but I definitely wasn’t nervous, I’ve been dancing for five years now. We practiced for two months, twice a week,” music major Kristopher Tena said.

The dance concert lasted about two hours. “It was terrific and enjoyable, I came to support my son in law Andrew Tran,” said Deborah Fancett an audience member.

The dances each required different outfits giving the dancer very little time between sets to change backstage.

“I wasn’t nervous, maybe a little at first, but from excitement. My parents came to support me and I think it’s been the best performance so far,” said journalism and dance major Carolina Solorio who was a guest performer from the California State University of Long Beach.

Some of the music contained, The Beatles, Papa Roach, Marvin Gaye, and Eminem. The dancers were pleased to see the positive applauds from the audience as well as the support from their friends and family and are definitely looking forward to next year’s dance concert.
