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.
