SANTA MARIA — Allan Hancock College’s dance students will perform for an in-person audience again when they present their fall “Dimensions in Dance” show at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
The free show, which was virtual last fall, will be performed in the outdoor courtyard between buildings A and B on the college’s Santa Maria campus.
“We are all very excited to present work that is site-specific and on campus,” Hancock assistant dance professor Sydney Sorenson said in a news release “The students are looking forward to performing in person again. They missed being able to perform on stage and feel very grateful to be able to perform for a live audience again.”
The performance features various styles of dance, which were inspired by the challenges the students and instructors faced during the pandemic and the period of remote learning.
In addition to the dancing, “Dimensions in Dance” will feature costumes by Hancock’s Fashion and Design Club and original music from the college’s music program.
“Collaborating with other programs at the college is rewarding,” said Professor Sorenson. “It’s a great opportunity to bring students together to create something meaningful. It is incredibly exciting to work with other creative people on campus.”
