Discover the wide range of classes, performances, workshops, lec/dems and more are planned for the annual 10-day celebration.
The Bay Area has one of the largest, most active and thriving dance communities in the country. Over a ten-day period each year BADW invites participants and volunteers to reaffirm the region’s commitment to dance, offering hundreds of free events representing the diversity of dance forms practiced in the region.
From established company programs to one-time events, BADW provides an opportunity for dance-lovers of all ages and experience-levels to take a grand tour of the many movement styles including Argentine tango, classical Indian, jazz, hip hop, ballet, traditional hula, fire dance, Samba, modern, Chinese classical, belly dance, aerial dance, West African, contact improvisation, and more.
Since 2012, Bay Area Dance Week has teamed up with Rhythm & Motion Dance Workout Program to present One Dance with nearly 700 people joining together, in dance, to celebrate the beginning of BADW. A perfect event to kick off this 10-day celebration of dance, One Dance features dance groups and schools from a wide array of dance styles – all performing in their own style to the same piece of music and then coming together, in unison for a final dance performance.
