The Orange Coast College Dance Department is hosting the OCC Faculty Dance Concert live on stage at the Robert B. Moore Theatre on Nov. 20. Tickets must be purchased online for $15 prior to the performance.
Doors to the theatre will open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. The concert will feature dance faculty along with alumni who will be showcasing their skills in various styles of dance.
“We have five choreographers from our faculty and three guest pieces that we are bringing from OCC former students,” OCC Dance Professor Jose Costas said. “There will be different styles of dancing being represented: contemporary ballet, jazz, modern dance, hip hop, and even a burlesque piece.”
In accordance with OCC’s COVID-19 mandates, attendees must wear masks at all times while indoors. When purchasing a ticket online, buyers will be asked to agree to a statement indicating that they will abide by the mask mandate while attending the event. If they do not agree to the statement, the ticket will not be able to be purchased.
There will not be a box office at the theatre, however, a QR code will be posted on the wall for last minute ticket purchases. Costas recommends buying a ticket before the day of the concert because seating in the Robert B. Moore theatre is limited to 50% capacity.
The last OCC Faculty Dance Concert was held before the COVID-19 shutdown in fall 2019. In the spring, the dance department will be hosting the OCC Student Dance Concert, highlighting choreography created by dance program students.
“Come and enjoy our first time opening a live performance after COVID-19,” Costas said. “It is really going to be a great show.”
