Step Out for Bay Area Dance Week

Dancers’ Group invites dance enthusiasts throughout the Bay Area to discover a wide variety of free classes, performances, workshops, lecture demonstrations and more offered during the 19th Annual Bay Area Dance Week, April 21 to 30, in San Francisco.

The celebration kicks off at 12 p.m. on April 21 at San Francisco City Hall’s Rotunda with One Dance, a globetrotting dance sequence created and lead by Rhythm & Motion. Movers everywhere are invited to participate in One Dance by learning the sequence online, attending a live rehearsal or jumping in the day of the event. The kickoff event also includes a presentation of the 2017 Dancers’ Choice Award and the Della Davidson Prize.
