America’s largest dance week hits the Bay Area for 10 days of intense body movin’ starting tomorrow. From April 22 –May 1 there will be over 400 FREE dance events across the entire Bay Area. We’re talking all types of dance styles you can think of including:  Scottish dancing, salsa, tango, hip-hop, clogging, fire dance, Samba, aerial dance, hula – and much, much more!

The week long festival kicks off tomorrow at noon in Union Square with BANDW’s One Dance, a flash mob of professional and non-professional dancers, teachers, students and yourself – busting a move to the same piece of dance music! Everyone is welcome to join in the opening celebration that will sweep SF’s streets and beyond for the next 10 days.

National Dance Week hosts not only live performances, but hundreds of dance classes and workshops coached by well-trained teachers (including those at ODC Dance Commons in the Mission — see their full schedule of FREE classes HERE). Clear out your calendar to learn some funky hip-hop moves next Monday, learn how to shake your hips like they do in Brazil during Carnival on Tuesday, and learn a fun Bollywood choreography next Thursday. Make sure your dancing shoes are ready to go starting tomorrow!
