The Rio Hondo Dance Program is noted for the high quality of its productions and the personal attention given to its dancers. The two annual department concerts showcase faculty, guest artist, and student choreography. Additional performance experiences are available to advanced students, who are selected by audition, to be part of the Rio Hondo Dance Collective. The touring ensemble members’ performance and choreographic opportunities include on campus venues, area dance festivals and community concerts.

On January 20, Rio Hondo College was selected to perform in the American College Dance Association (ACDA) conference’s Gala Concert at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Only 1 of 10 dance pieces were nominated to present in the Gala out of 36 works from the Baja Regional Conference. Rio Hondo Student David Bernal beautifully performed his solo Cocoon in the prestigious Gala Concert. Way to go David!
