Tips and Tricks To Get Started on Your Event Listing


Bay Area Dance Week, one of the nation’s largest, most inclusive celebrations of movement and dance, will return April 24 – May 3, 2020. Each year the Bay Area Dance community throws open its doors and invites the public to experience its rich and vibrant dance scene, completely free of charge.

Bay Area Dance Week offers something for everyone, regardless of experience, age, and agility. Participants can choose from workshops, performances, classes, open rehearsals, and more. Whether Bolivian folkloric dance, Tahitian dance, Congolese Dance, Hula, Jazz, Hip Hop for adults and kids – this festival has something for everyone.


National Dance Week was founded in 1981 to increase awareness of dance and its contributions to our national culture. The first Bay Area Dance Week (BADW) festival grew out of a public dialogue in 1998, when dance artists, administrators, and organizations came together to explore how best to spotlight Bay Area dance during National Dance Week. The festival that emerged took a national initiative and imbued it with the innovative and inclusive spirit of the Bay Area. As the largest per capita center for dance in the United States, the Bay Area’s festivities have been the most extensive and best attended celebrations in the country since BADW’s inception. Each year, over 100 dance organizations and artists present events during Bay Area Dance Week, involving more than 2,500 artists and 20,000 attendees.

Bay Area Dance Week is presented by Dancers’ Group.
