PRODUCTIONS AT HARRIS CENTER
Folsom Lake College’s MOSAIC Dance Company performs a variety of dance styles including Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Contemporary, African dance, theatrical dance style.
We are also a MOSAIC of diverse people, with different bodies, colors, shapes and sizes, ethnicities, religious affiliations and ideological positionings… a MOSAIC not just of dance, but of life!
Most choreography is student choreographed, featuring FLC’s dancers aiming to achieve their A.A. Degree in Dance Studies from Folsom Lake College.
The mission for MOSAIC is: DISCOVER YOURSELF IN DANCE. MOSAIC teaches not only dance technique and performance quality, but also guides students in valuable lessons about discipline, commitment, faith and friendship. Initiated by Professor Debi Worth, FLC’s dance program has trained MOSAIC since 2007, providing exciting opportunities for MOSAIC dancers to tour to places such as Hawaii, New York and Los Angeles as performers.
ii) Dance 372: Dance Composition and Production (FLC class) This class is affiliated with the MOSAIC Dance Club, where choreography is generated, rehearsed and refined. MOSAIC dancers then stage these pieces, both at FLC’s ‘Evening of Dance’ (EOD) the first Thursday on December (Fall semester) and first Thursday in May (Spring semester), and on tour each summer.
