San Francisco Trolley Dances

Now in its 14th year, San Francisco Trolley Dances has been dubbed “art for citizens” and “a gift to the City” by past attendees and has become one of the most eagerly-awaited events of the Bay Area’s fall dance season.

This two-day, free public performance curated by Epiphany Dance Theater artistic director Kim Epifano, pairs artists and ensembles with specific sites along San Francisco’s MUNI route, where they are invited to create an 8- to 15-minute piece in response to the physical environment, architecture and history of the area.

“Presented By Epiphany Dance Theater, Trolley Dances is the most delectable moveable dance feast of the season. Using the city as both a backdrop and unpredictable character, the peripatetic event ushers many of the Bay Area’s top dance companies off the stage and onto the street.”

Kids On Track

Since 2007, Epiphany has offered Bay Area schools a free educational component of SF Trolley Dances known as Kids on Track, which features in-school workshops and site-specific performances.
