When: April 24-May 3 2015
bayareandw.org

Twist, Twerk, Tango

With the largest per capita concentration of dancers in America, the Bay Area is packed with so many movers and shakers that a week isn't enough for all the action of the 17th annual Bay Area Dance Week. Ten days of classes, open rehearsals, and performances presented free of charge by Dancers' Group will satisfy every craving for movement. Join the noon kickoff at Union Square by taking part in One Dance, a choreographed routine that spans music and moves from the 1970s to the present day, then parade down to the Mission for samba with Brazilian Carnaval before topping off the evening with a cocktail and the Move to the Now dance concert at Minna Gallery. If the first day has you going, shake your hips and tap your feet through nine more days of fun.

The 17th annual Bay Area Dance Week starts at noon at Union Square, Geary and Powell streets, S.F. Free; bayareadance.org.

  • 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.'"
