Tucson, Arizona-- Pima Community College performing arts department presents a PCC Dance concert dedicated to the spirit of thankfulness this holiday season. Under the direction of full-time faculty Aurora Gonçalves-Shaner, the show emphasizes the passions and convictions of this generation by blending the virtue of gratitude with the power of dance attitude. PCC students and faculty, as well as guest artists from the University of Arizona perform a variety of dance styles varying from classical works, such as the Black Swan Grand Pas de Deux from “Swan Lake;” to the most contemporary dance styles of today including Latin ballroom dances (Salsa and more) and hip-hop.
Gonçalves-Shaner was born in São Paulo, Brazil and grew up in Bahia, where she developed her classical ballet and modern dance techniques. She has travelled the world performing as a professional dancer with a Brazilian contemporary dance company, Ballet Teatro Castro Alves (a.k.a Bahia Ballet). As an American resident, besides obtaining her B.A. in dance from Brigham Young University, and her M.F.A. in dance from The University of Arizona, Gonçalves-Shaner has won national titles in ballroom dance competitions. She is currently a full-time dance faculty teaching at Pima Community College and the University of Arizona.
The PCC Dance concert is open to the public. Tickets are available at the Center for the Arts box office, located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson, (just west of downtown and I-10 on St. Mary’s Road which turns into Anklam Road). Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon-5 p.m. and one hour prior to performance. For more information call 520-206-6986, e-mail <> , or
