Yerba Buena visitors and passersby were taken by surprise when six dancers claimed the entrance of the Center for Arts as their stage for a 25-minute performance Friday, March 28 at noon.

The six performers danced a routine that combined choreography and improvisation to the accompaniment of music performed by cellist Alex Kelly. As the marquis performance for the Dance Anywhere event, Beth Fein, artistic director and creator, organized the show, which attracted a crowd of about 50 people that surrounded the entrance of the center.

In it's tenth year, Dance Anywhere is a world event of dancers, artists, musicians and performers of all types that adapt their locations to become their stages.

"My dream is that the whole world stops and dances for a moment together. Could you imagine?" Fein says.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
