    Auditions for the Richland College dance concert took place Aug. 30. Over 30 students tried out for this new fall semester. 

    Performers of all dancing styles, including contemporary, modern, jazz, tap and hip hop, were welcome. The goal for students were to make the cast for upcoming concerts. If casted, students are only required to attend rehearsals corresponding to their dance piece.   

    Each student will perform a maximum of three pieces for the concert. Two performances of the concert will be presented at 12:30 and 7:30 p.m. as stated on the Richland website as of Aug. 28. 

    The date and the location of the concert has yet to be determined. For those who wish to attend and see the event, can find updates as they are posted online at www.richlandcollege.edu and sometimes on the student activities boards posted in El Paso Hall. 

    Concerts are always free and open to the public, including students of Richland.
