According to the Pew Research Center, community colleges enroll 44 percent - or close to 6 million - of all U.S. undergraduates. These schools typically offer small class sizes, flexible scheduling and affordability. Those who wish to attend a two-year degree program while pursuing extra-curricular activities such as dance may want to consider enrolling at Glendale Community College.
The school reports that it hosts a dance performance each year. One show was called Re-Charged and featured numbers in which dancers wore lights. The artistic director for Physical Graffiti, Andrea Hashim, provided the choreography.
Star dancers included Jenna Kosowski and Nicole Touzien, as well as guest artists from the Artifact Dance Project, Scorpius Dance Theater and Christina Eide. The event was held in honor of Lenna DeMarco, who served as the program's dance program's director from 1989 to 2010.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of dancers and choreographers is expected to increase by 6 percent over the next several years. These professionals hold approximately 29,200 jobs annually and those who work for performing arts companies can earn an average of $15.30 per hour.
