"It is in (dance's) power and province to reaffirm the dignity of man in an age that desperately needs this affirmation. Never have the arts been so much needed, nor so challenged. Surely Dance can remind us of the greatness of man's spirit, and of his creativeness, not his destructiveness." - Jose Limon

Thank you to all who joined sjDANCEco for our 2019 Fall performance at the California Theatre on October 18th and 19th. With over 1100 fourth and fifth graders present in the theatre Friday morning, and two full length performances on Friday and Saturday night, Etched in Time was a great success! We look forward to seeing you again next year!
In light of current events with Covid-19, sjDANCEco will be canceling our April 26th Spring Dance Festival.
sjDANCEco stands firm in connecting community through the power of dance, and it deeply saddens us that we will not be able to hold the festival this year. With over sixty groups coming together to create an all day, free dance event for over 10,000 people to enjoy, it feels like a great loss to not be able to move and celebrate together. We are in unusual times, and we understand that this festival is not just the work on our end of organizing the details, but the long hours and deep dedication of our participants and their dancers to make a beautiful piece to share with the public. We want to extend our gratitude to all of the participants, dancers as young as five to as old as sixty-five, who continually show up and work hard to bring the joys of dance to our community.
We stand in solidarity with each and everyone of you during these times, and we encourage you to keep moving, shaking, jumping and dancing. Though it may be in the confines of your apartment, the power of dance never ceases to amaze us. Stay connected to your body, connect online to the many free classes that are being offered, stay in contact, and stay well. Wishing you, and your loved ones good health during these uncertain times.
