So you think you can dance? Then join us on Saturday, July 30 for National Dance Day. National Dance Day was created by the popular Fox TV dance show to celebrate dance in America and the FCC dance staff wants to invite dancers of all ages to participate in Fresno’s National Dance Day here on the FCC campus.
Participants will attend free master classes in a variety of styles including contemporary, Jazz, African, ballroom, ballet, hip-hop and more throughout the day. They will also learn choreography provided by the TV show that will be part of a Dance Showcase in the evening in the FCC Theatre.
The SYTYCD choreography can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0C-7f4tmyt8.

Event organizer and FCC dance instructor Cristal Tiscareno is excited to showcase the FCC dance program and bring the community to the FCC campus to celebrate dance in America. “Most of the dance teachers who will be presenting have studied at FCC and gone on and done more. It’s exciting to have them come back and teach,” she said.
Cristal also says this event is a chance to show future students that earning a dance degree doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be a professional dancer, but it can open up other opportunities.
“Once you’ve achieved a bachelor’s degree in something you love, you have learned to think outside the box, work as a team. You’re really diligent and understand how to make and stay on schedule. The grade point average of most dancers is pretty high because you have to be disciplined,” she added.
