November 5, 2021 (El Cajon) - The Grossmont College Dance Department will stage its annual student-choreographed dance concert in the new Performing and Visual Arts Center (PVAC) on November 18, 19 and 20.

Titled “Breaking Boundaries,” the yearly fall-semester concert will highlight a variety of genres – including hip hop, ballet, jazz and tap – choreographed by Grossmont College dance majors.

The PVAC is a $44 million facility funded by East County voters through Proposition V, a $398-million bond measure approved in 2012 that includes a 390-seat performance hall for dance, theatre, and live music programs. It also houses the campus’ Hyde Art Gallery.

Tickets are $10 for the 7:30 p.m. concerts and are available on a pre-sale basis only due to COVID-19 restrictions, with cash-only transactions at the Grossmont College Dance Department in Building 24, Room 272 near the PVAC. Sale hours are 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m, Monday through Friday. The campus is closed Nov. 11 for Veterans Day. Tickets must be purchased by 5 p.m. Tuesday, November 16. Seating is limited to ensure social distancing, so purchase tickets early.

Masks are required for all guests, as well as proof of being vaccinated or negative test results taken within 72 hours of the performance.

The annual faculty-choreographed dance concert, “Entrances and Exits,” held in the spring, is scheduled for April 28-30, 2022.
