TCC Hosts Mosaic in Motion Dance Performance, Engages Next Generation of Dancers

As part of TCC’s commitment to Community engagement, Tarrant County College presents the 2017 Mosaic in Motion dance concert, set for 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at TCC Northwest (4801 Marine Creek Pkwy., Fort Worth, WTLO Theatre).

Mosaic in Motion is an annual Department of Performing Arts tradition and includes performances by TCC Northwest’s Mosaic Dance Project, a student-based touring company. The show features choreography by faculty, guest artists, alumni, and members of Mosaic Dance Project, in various genres including ballet, modern, jazz, tap and hip-hop. The audience will enjoy both solo and ensemble performances expressing a full range of emotions and stories.

 As part of this year’s program, hundreds of area high school students will develop their dance skills under the guidance of Mosaic in Motion participants. From Oct. 18-20, TCC will hold master classes for more than 400 youth, covering techniques in contemporary, hip-hop, jazz and modern dance. In addition, students will attend a special dress rehearsal for the Mosaic in Motion performance and be able to ask questions of dancers and instructors. Participants include students from the Fort Worth, Azle, Birdville, Keller, Eagle Mountain-Saginaw and Springtown school districts.

“This program will allow the next generation of dancers to advance their talents and experience all that goes into a professional show,” said Lacreacia Sanders, associate professor of dance at TCC Northwest and director of Mosaic Dance Project. “This is a unique opportunity we’re proud to offer to students throughout the area.”

Advance tickets for Mosaic in Motion are available for purchase online, and the box office will open one hour prior to the performances. General admission is $6; the online presale price is $5. Students and seniors are $3. The show is free to TCC students, faculty and staff.

TCC teaches dance at its Northwest, Northeast, South and Southeast campuses. Programs encompass a variety of styles, with courses designed for novices through advanced dancers. For more information, visit the TCC website.
