The purpose of the Dance Club is to promote the art and performance of dance. Club activities include the production of two annual dance recitals and attendance of the performances and master classes that are offered in the Ocean and Monmouth County areas. These activities give members an opportunity to enhance their dance abilities and to learn the processes involved in the production, rehearsal and performance of a dance show.
Improv & Theater Club
This club provides students with a forum to hone their skills in Public Speaking and/or in Acting, Directing, Playwriting, and Technical Theatre. Intramural competitions are held and prizes are awarded for outstanding achievement in Public Speaking and in Theatre. Faculty advisors, experienced in the professional theatre and in public speaking, provide private coaching, free of charge to members.
The purpose of this club is to allow students to gain experience and feel more comfortable performing(informally as well as formally)in front of others. Club members will share and gain new ideas in performance and composition through constructive review and critique. The club creates opportunities for OCC musicians to collaborate and perform together, and to experience and appreciate many types of music.
OCC Jazz Band
Jazz Band is a one-credit music course, but also functions like a club outside of class time, in that it performs extensively on campus and in the region. We pursue and demand a high standard of excellence, and encourage individual and corporate uniqueness and creativity. Interested students should contact Prof. Marowitz for an audition/interview. Visit the Jazz Band page for more detailed information.
