Let Your Soul Soar

If you love to sing, act, dance, play an instrument, write or draw or paint, CLC offers opportunities for you to explore and develop your talent.


CLC has several ensemble performing groups. Some have open membership while others require an audition. Participating requires you to register for a class, either for non-credit or credit.


The Theatre department mounts several productions each year, and auditions are open to students and the community. Audition notices are posted on bulletin boards in the James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts.


The Dance Department offers students and community members opportunities to participate in several dance productions each year. There are opportunities to learn choreography from professionals in the field and to create your own choreography. Auditions are open and take place in early fall and spring.
