Competition dance team planned at college

Instructors discuss students’ interest in possible new club

Students from the Ballerina Dance Team practice in the Arts Building.

New conversations with campus administration have shown that there might be a SJCC choreography company on the horizon.

Dean of Kinesiology and Athletics Lamel D. Harris states that he is, “… open to exploring expansion of any team and athletic opportunity here at San Jose City including a competition dance team provided all the necessary planning and needs for sustainability are fulfilled”

ASG President Leif Benson commented that he would, “…support a competitive dance team at San Jose City College if students are interested,” despite the decided lack of one until now.

Carol Abohatab, dance instructor at SJCC, suggested that the first steps to make this a reality would be having a written curriculum approved, expressing that she, “…hopes to be able to offer a dance team class by Fall 2023 or Spring 2024.”

There is no set timeline for when the dance team will be official, further updates to come.
