Dance Program celebrates 50 years
Submitted By the City of Fremont
When the City of Fremont Recreation Dance Program started in 1963, there were just a few dance classes and only a handful of dance instructors. Fast forward to 2013 and the program includes more than 300 students per session and 20 dedicated dance instructors. Children, youth, adults, and seniors participate in a wide variety of dance opportunities such as Hip Hop, Ballet, Tap and Jazz, Ballroom, and Musical Theatre Dance. The dance program also offers cultural dance including Hula, Filipino Folk, and Bollywood. These classes are representative of Fremont's great cultural diversity and designed for learning both fundamental dance techniques and expanding participants' cultural awareness.
The dance program has touched many lives over the last 50 years. Classes have offered opportunities for participants not only to learn the art of dance, but to participate in a great physical activity and develop lasting friendships.
Join us in commemorating 50 years of dance in the City of Fremont by attending the "50th Anniversary Dance Recital Celebrations" held at Ohlone College's Jackson Theatre May 31 - June 2. Recital classes have been preparing since February with over 12 classes comprised of various ages and dance styles scheduled to perform.
Tickets are $10 per person and may be purchased at the door on performance days. For more information about the City of Fremont Dance Program and recital information visit www.Fremont.gov/Dance or call Los Cerritos Community Center at (510) 791-4351.
