Spring Festival 2023

From May 12-13, SFDFF presents our third annual spring festival, a live 2-day event celebrating new ways to experience dance from around the world—and our own backyard. With Cosmogony, encounter a groundbreaking live digital performance from 6,000 miles away. Geneva-based choreographer Gilles Jobin sends motion captured dancers across the digital divide straight to San Francisco. In SFDFF’s Bay Area Showcase we continue our tradition of supporting local artists with a special showcase of dance, film, and community. And learn to dance the Hustle with Abdiel’s gender-neutral masterclass series that joyfully allows everyone to learn both leading AND following while partner dancing.
