Dance and art have the power to change your perspective. If you’re willing to keep an open mind, art can show you things you’ve never seen before [and how to] appreciate everything, big and small.

Made us think about cultural integration of San Francisco and how so many kinds of people and dances work together.

Everything about Trolley Dances was exciting and adventurous. The creativity was amazing and endless as was the energy and effort. You could really tell the dancers felt like they were part of something unique and very special. I am so happy I got to see these performances and have a wider range in inspiration.

This was my fourth year of attending Trolley Dances with School of the Arts. Every year I am impressed with the variety of dance companies in the Bay Area. This year was stunning as usual.

Trolley Dances provided another great day of showcasing San Francisco’s unique dance community. I thank Kim Epifano for her master class and her invitation to a special showing on the Friday before the weekend.”
