The Bay Area International Deaf Dance Festival (BAIDDF) is an annual event produced by Urban Jazz Dance Company that consists of performances and workshops that highlight the important contributions that Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HoH) artists make to our community.
This year we have Deaf artists flying in from Colombia, Canada, India, all over the USA and more. There will be a diversity of Sign Languages.
Please note that the Sunday, 3pm performance is a family-friendly matinee, and will be at Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (2868 Mission Street @ 25th St, SF).
In addition to performances, the festival will feature workshops in Jazz, Hip-Hop, Ballet, ASL DANCE, and more different types of dance classes taught by International, Domestic and Local Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing artists who sign fluently. These workshops will be taught for both Youth and Adult participants.
