San Francisco Dance Film Festival: Dancing in A-Yard

October 5, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$15 – $25

A group of men with one highlighted in the foreground look just outside of the camera's frame to the right. They are wearing blue shirts with white undershirts, two are wearing orange fleece-lined jackets. A light blue stripe appears at the top of the frame with the words Dancing in A-Yard in thin type face.

“Dancing in A-Yard” is an intimate look into the lives of ten men in a rehabilitative dance program in Los Angeles County’s California State Prison at Lancaster.

By dancing and telling their stories together, these men and their instructor challenge toxic masculinity, confront stigmas faced by incarcerated people, and break the taboo against dancing behind bars. Their shared desire for personal transformation and the creation of a new prison culture inspires hope for progressive reforms and the potential for dance to positively impact the lives of incarcerated people, their families, and communities.
