2019 Dance Gala Concert and Fête
Mason dancers perform works by renowned choreographers in the Concert Hall each spring in the Dance Gala Concert. This extraordinary evening features a dynamic performance of technically demanding and intensely driven work by talented students as they embark upon their promising dance careers.
