The San Jacinto College South Campus Performing Arts Company (PAC) will wrap up the semester with a dance concert on Dec. 1-2 that showcases choreography ranging from comical to thought-provoking underscored by modern, contemporary movement.

Program Coordinator and Dance Professor Jamie Williams said the production, titled Evolve, is a collaboration between dance faculty and student choreographers where instructors mentor pupils and “help them along their choreographic journey.” 

Williams said the hurricane took a huge chunk of time away from the rehearsal schedule, but the troupe refused to let Hurricane Harvey keep them from presenting a marvelous production.

“Our performers and choreographers this year have been so focused and determined to put together amazing work,” she said. “Our students have worked very hard in rehearsals that meet up to five times a week, and they have not complained a bit.”

Meanwhile, Williams said she wants this production to be entertaining for the community and a testament to the quality of the program, but she also wants to give the audience “a window to new perspectives.”

“We hope that the people who watch our dances,” she said,” can come away with some sort of positive shift.”

Performances of Evolve will take place at 7 p.m. on Dec. 1-2 in Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center (S15) on the South Campus. General admission tickets are $10, and $5 for San Jac students and employees. Tickets may be purchased with cash at the door or online through the department’s ticketing site: sanjacdance.ticketleap.com.
