Emigdio Arredondo

MCC alumnus Emigdio Arredondo grew up admiring dancers on movies and television, but did not think the opportunities were available to pursue his dreams. At MCC he joined the Dance Company and eventually changed his major when his professor, Tina Rangel, helped him gain opportunities and network. Arredondo is one of over 600 dancers to be selected for the University of Arizona’s School of Dance in the fall of 2015. “It took a while for me to accept my passion, and I don’t think I would have done it so quickly and effectively without MCC,” Arredondo said.
