sjDANCEco Festival @ Eastridge Center April 28th
The sjDANCEco Festival (called Dancin' Downtown from 2003-2011) was sjDANCEco's first community event 16 years ago! Originally located in Downtown San Jose's Circle of Palms, the festival has grown substantially and moved to Santana Row in 2011. Now located in Santana Row Park, it continues to be a cornerstone event of Bay Area Dance Week.
sjDANCEco is instrumental in bringing local as well as regional dance artists together to celebrate National Dance Week in a FREE outdoor festival featuring the diversity and the wealth of our dance community. Situated in the popular Eastridge Center, close to 70 groups perform within a 7 hour window on the first Sunday of National Dance Week each spring (April 28, 2019). Click HERE for more information.
