Spring Dance Concert

Four dancers on stage.
The Annual Spring Dance Concert features choreography by our Dance faculty from Jazz III, Modern III, Ballet III, Musical Theatre Dance (even years) or Pop culture (odd years), and our Gonzaga Repertory Dance Companies. This concert is fully supported technically with set, light and costume design. It is one of the Theatre and Dance Department’s main stage productions for our season, taking place in late April and open to the public.
