Welcome Performers and Technicians

Foster your artistry, technique and knowledge!

Dance, theater and music commune the creative mind with physical skill. Sometimes personal and solitary, often collaborative and community- focused, pursuing artistic achievement evolves the individual self into a whole.  

Supported behind the scenes by the skillful creativity of set, lighting and costume designers, sound designers and audio technicians, the field of performing arts calls all who express themselves through movement and sound.

With a history of distinction, GCC’s diverse artist/faculty find a calling as performers themselves. They are committed to sharing with students their passion and dedication to artistic excellence, technical mastery and aesthetic sophistication. This takes place in individual, group, ensemble and class settings.

Performing Arts Scholarships

Scholarships available to both music majors and non-music majors. The scholarship amount is usually based on current course load, specifically the number Performing Arts classes being taken. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship contact the director of your discipline.

Performances and Events Open to the Public

GCC features performances by students, faculty and visiting artists throughout the year. Most Music and Dance events are free unless otherwise noted. Check our events calendar for upcoming performances and audition opportunities.
