World Arts West – Ethnic Dance Festival

“I know of no regular event that more effectively, more movingly, recommends this country’s
diverse inclusiveness than the annual San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival.” – The New York Times

The San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival was founded to present the diverse ethnic dance companies in the Bay Area. Over the years, the Festival has expanded its reach to include performers from throughout Northern California and has presented over 600 dance companies from over a hundred different genres. 

During its rich history, the Festival has celebrated and fostered appreciation for the diverse cultural communities in the Bay Area and Northern California, through an annual performance season of dance styles that have included traditional classical dance, sacred dance genres, vernacular dance forms, social dance and folk dance presentations.
