The Performing & Communication Arts Division provides comprehensive and challenging courses in the performing arts. The Division is broken into six areas of study: Dance, Music, Speech Communication, Speech-Language Pathology, Television and Radio, and Theater Arts.


We provide transfer programs for majors in Music, Theater Arts, Speech Communication, and Dance; performance opportunities in a wide variety of musical ensembles, theater productions and dance ensembles; and certificate programs in commercial music, television and radio, and theater technology.

The Performing & Communication Arts Division is housed in Pasadena City College’s Center for the Arts. The facility includes state-of-the art classrooms, labs, studios, rehearsal spaces and practice rooms. The Center for the Arts moreover features four stellar performance and exhibition venues: The Robert and Adrienne Westerbeck Recital Hall, The Boone Family Art Gallery, The Center for the Arts Theater, and the George and MaryLou Boone Sculpture Garden.
