Grand Opening Gala

At this crowning event of our Grand Opening, we will be thrilled to welcome world-renowned breakdancer Chris Fonseca from London. He is a living example of what can be accomplished through hard work and perseverance, even in the face of great obstacles. Chris’s personal motto is: “Dreams don't work unless you do.” We will also be privileged to have the USU Chamber Singers performing three numbers for us under the talented direction of Cory Evans. We are pleased to bring these performances to the entire community and welcome all to the celebration.
