Get in sync with Master Dance Classes

Sheridan Martinez, Editor in Chief


Every semester, Grossmont College’s Dance Department features Master Dance Classes, which are extracurricular classes that are offered throughout the semester to students. Each master dance class is taught by a guest instructor and the master dance classes are available to all Grossmont College students; being enrolled in a dance class is not required. The master dance classes are a great program for students that want to get involved with dance and step outside of their comfort zones to challenge themselves to one particular genre.

“The Grossmont College Dance Department offers master classes to both dance students as well as the community at large to augment the current dance curriculum,” said Kathy Meyer, dance department chair. The master dance classes are $10, and must be paid before attending; payments can be collected through the main dance studio Building 24-271. Students may register through a dance instructor or by calling 619-644-7766
