The HCC dance program will present its Fall 2023 Dance Showcase at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 and 11 at Smith Theatre. The performance features an eclectic mix of artistic visions choreographed and performed by students, alumni, faculty, and guest artists. After the Nov. 10 performance is a talk-back and reception, catered by culinary students.
Cara Kerrebrock, a student who fought cancer for two-and-a-half years, choreographed “For the Love of Life, Dance, and Robots, ” an upbeat piece to share her admiration for Daft Punk. “I love life, and dancing makes me feel alive! Daft Punk is my favorite music to dance to,” said Kerrebrock.
