Dancing Through Summer: Never Miss a Chance to Dance!

We all love dancing on stage; the lights and costumes, the glitz and glamor and an applauding audience! But the magic really begins in the studio. It is where ideas come to life, it is where we push ourselves to do something we have never done before, learn something new and exciting and constantly evolve.

The summer is the Bay Area is a great time to immerse ourselves in the joy of dance. From several shows being performed each weekend, to hundreds of workshops in different dance styles, it is a wonderful time to learn and grow. Whether one is interested in Contemporary, Hip Hop or World Dance, there are opportunities for everyone to learn and grow. The summer also sees an explosion of dance festivals. Our Bacha Emerging Performers were recently part of the Ethnic Dance Festival, hosted by Worlds Art West at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. An incredible platform where people from various cultures came together over several weekends in the summer, to share their knowledge and expertise and bring their unique vision to the stage. In addition, various schools offer dance camps and summer intensives to allow kids to immerse themselves in the joy that dance can bring.

So bring out your dancing shoes and try something new and exciting this summer! Dance is about learning, sharing and experiencing. Whether you want to try out a new style, or polish your technique, it is never too late.

This summer, fall in love with dance! As Martha Graham said, “Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”
