Dance Mission’s GRRRL Brigade
Dance Mission’s GRRRL Brigade is an intensive dance/leadership development program that provides high-quality dance training, performance opportunities, and a sense of self-empowerment for girls ages 9 to 18 in San Francisco.
The participants learn Modern-Jazz, Afro-Cuban Modern, Hip Hop and Taiko (Japanese drumming) from leading dance and taiko artists and they are also encouraged to create their own choreography. Founded in 2004 by Dance Brigade, the group now has over 80 participants.
The GRRRL Brigade performs around the Bay Area each year including “The Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie: The Kidz Version”, an alternative take on the holiday classic & “Peace On Earth and Justice For All”, our new winter show presented at Brava Theater; and a spring show at Dance Mission Theater written and choreographed by Dance Brigade teachers and the girls, focusing on issues facing girls today and honoring great women past and present.
